People with dyslexia possess many strengths thanks to the unique ways in which their brains process stimuli, including language.
Many individuals with dyslexia are right-brain dominant.
The right and left hemispheres of the brain are organized in a slightly different way. On the right, cells are more evenly distributed (versus in clusters).
This means connections have to cross larger distances, which helps dyslexics with big-picture thinking, spotting patterns, and taking a more open and creative approach to problem-solving.
Dyslexics are often holistic rather than linear thinkers.
While memorizing facts may not be their strong suit, children and adults with dyslexia often have the ability to integrate personal experiences with acquired knowledge to generate new ideas.
They can make great team players and be extremely creative students who are artistically gifted and have an intuitive sense of spatial organization.
That's because visual thinking and spatial reasoning are both associated with right-brain thinking.
