Dyslexic Thinking Skills Explained

Dyslexia affects as many as 1 in 5 individuals and is a genetic variation that impacts a person’s ability to learn and process information. As a consequence, people with dyslexia have varying strengths, including creative thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills, while experiencing difficulties in areas such as spelling, reading, and memorization of facts.

In general, the cognitive profile of an individual with dyslexia will differ from that of a neurotypical individual. As a result, dyslexic individuals truly do have a unique way of thinking.

We call this thinking: Dyslexic Thinking.
