    Do you know what is dyslexic ?

    0 Comments by AdminOnline Published on 06-09-12 11:57 AM
    Those who are dyslexic are not abnormal people but rather that they see & learn things differently. It happen to both children & adult.

    Why is dyslexia a gift?

    Dyslexic people are highly creative, intuitive, and excel at three-dimensional problem solving and hands-on learning. Our visual and holistic learning style means that we learn best through the creative process, with methods that focus on mastery of the meanings of words and symbols.

    The true gift of dyslexia is the gift of mastery. When we use learning methods that fit our thinking style, we can excel in academics and read and write efficiently.

    You might be one of them but do not know it.

    It can be a special gift to you...
