Despite working in education and being a teacher her entire life, Margo struggled with severe dyslexia and dyspraxia for most of her life. At age 50 she finally discovered how to turn her disability into a superpower. She now supports students around the world in doing the same for themselves.
“Why are you so stupid and lazy?!”
Your entire life, people have misunderstood you.
If you’ve followed traditional advice for improving your reading and writing, you were probably taught to read through phonics and endless repetition.
When you struggled, teachers told you that you needed to work harder and do even more repetition.
Which makes sense...
...to people who don’t know what it’s really like to struggle with dyslexia.
But you do know what it is like to actually have dyslexia.
You know that the advice of well-intentioned family members and teachers doesn’t actually work for you.
Sure, you can read materials over and over again and endlessly write and rewrite your essays but that doesn’t work.
Here’s the reality...
Sure, you need to be able to read words and sentences, but that will only get you so far. More importantly, you need to discover what your real thinking style is and use it to your advantage.
And the only way to achieve this is to get personal guidance from a specialist dyslexia tutor who actually understands what dyslexia is, how to manage it, and most importantly, how to work with you to find what will work best for you.
It’s not that you’re “learning disabled” or stupid. It’s that you’ve been following the advice of people who don’t understand you. You’ve been trying to do it their way, instead of figuring out what ‘your way’ is.
For those with Dyslexia, there are specific secrets to succeeding in school... and in life.
Think about it. Dyslexia is a genetic trait that has evolved over millions of years and appears everywhere around the world. So it must have an evolutionary advantage, or it would have died out. You just need to learn what that evolutionary advantage is and how to use it to your benefit.
Many of the things you’ve been told are wrong:
- Most people will tell you that you need to read things over and over in order to learn. They force you to follow sequences and procedures for learning.
- To match your non-linear thinking style, you may find that using mind maps gives you a fast track to making those deeper connections when you read new materials.
- Perhaps the biggest myth of all is that dyslexia is just a disability. In fact, you have the ability to see the big picture and make connections that others cannot.
Getting advice from people who don’t deeply understand dyslexia is like bringing an airplane to a car mechanic. They aren’t going to know what to do with it, so they’ll change the oil and send you on your way.
