Fantastic peace as a dyslexic I know Al to well about the frustration. Also I would say that at least 80% of prisoners are dyslexic do to there frustration that they felt in the education system so turn to crim
Spot on Steve xx
Great piece Steve – we really do need to do more to help people with dyslexia reach their potential. Education is the answer!
Hooray! Beautifully & eloquently described. Agree, its not a difficulty but a speciality and a different way of thinking. Xx
Steve, excellent…. gives a really good perspective for those of us who don’t really understand what dyslexia is.
PS… my text always changes sorry to sooty, so I often say “I’m Sooty…”
Refreshing read. My son is 10 and I have told his school numerous times since he was 5/6 years old I believe him to be dyslexic. I have constantly hit denial and been shrugged off. They have told me he has retention problems, our optician has identified dyslexia and still no movement from school. I completely agree with your insight and the fact that the education system needs to be changed to ensure that all schools adapt to help children with such needs.
Really a great piece, Steve.
I love this one:
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
As a fellow dyslexic, I have leant to see my alternative perspective to be an advantage, regardless of years of being told it was a disability. We need to hear more positive stories about dyslexicia….lovely piece Steve and thank you! X
Nice article Steve..Thanks for sharing and be good to ctach up soon… see what I did there..
Having known and loved the author, my son too is dyslexic his A nearly A star in English was testimony to his teachers that agreed to look differently at him. He is the ubiquitous book worm who cannot read enough, I am not sure what he sees as he reads but his teachers have inspired him. His ability to speak and engage people leaves me in awe, he is an accomplished young man, his spelling sucks but who cares!
I know and love Mr Edge give me a visionary like him over a thousand geeks any day.
Great article! We need to reframe how we perceive dyslexia-not as a challenge or an obstacle, but as an opportunity
Steve, what a fabulous article !! As always incredibly inspirational, you encourage us all to think and act differently !! B
Nice article Steve! Hope you’re well.
Great article, I’m dyslexic and know how the education system fails anyone who learns in a different way. But through hard work, determination and a vision for the future you can over come and celebrate being different.
Great article Steve, with articles like this in the world it will only help remove the stigma surrounding Dyslexia. Giving young people a fighting chance. Thanks Steve
Beautifully written and brilliantly captured. I lived it and now a see my 7 year old son following the same pattern.
Our differences are what we bring to society. Don’t be afraid to be different and challenge preconceptions!
Loved this, and my Dyslexia makes me think deeply and creatively ??
Great stuff Steve Edge. Always a pleasure to read your inspired thoughts! S
Fantastic piece Steve and so true.
Leg end. Remember meeting you.
I am sharing this positive and inspirational message to friends and family.Xx
I believe one of the ways to effect change is to change education at source. And since successive governments are determined to give hierarchy to academic subjects all those who have dyslexic tendencies will continue to struggle.
A rebellion is taking place with our environmental crisis and so a rebellion must take place in our education system.
We need visionary philanthropists to drive a new way of learning, to be prepared to take risks and start a system from the ground up.
Could this be you Steve?
