Dyslexia

Neurodiversity is about how our brains process information and how we think, as we can be wired differently. This includes concentration, language, sound, images, light, texture, colour, touch, smell, taste, perception, sequencing and movement. One major neuro-diverse type is listed below

What is Dyslexia? It affects how words are processed: reading, spelling, writing, information, language, sequencing, remembering things for a short time and referring to notes. Dyslexia is a learning disability that can affect all levels of intelligence. Dyslexia can impact on the development of automatic skills that may not match up to an individual’s other cognitive abilities.

Auditory ProcessingAuditory Processing – How they process information efficiently from what they hear and slow processing information.


NumeracyNumeracy – Difficulties and understanding of simple numbers which includes, money, telling the time, time keeping and basic numeracy skills


Working/Short Term MemoryWorking / Short-Term Memory – How they remember things for a short time, events, times, dates and have difficulty holding on to several pieces of information without referring to notes.


Around 10% of the UK population is affected to varying degrees, with 4% severely.

Some people that are dyslexic can have superior talents in certain areas. They can often have strong creative abilities, are intuitive problem solvers and original thinkers. Many have good visual and spatial awareness. They can also have good manual dexterity, communication and technical skills.

No matter how intelligent men and women are they can still feel misunderstood and vulnerable.
