The Dyslexic Advantage by Brock and Fernette Eide

Nov 30, 2022 9:21:57 AM / by Tim McCarthy


Editor’s Note: When I was school, I’m not sure dyslexia was even identified.  And so these kids seen as “stupid” or “slow learners”.  When my kids were in school, dyslexia become known as a learning disability.  Now we know, as this book reveals through both scientific and individual stories, the dyslexic brain simply has a different mode of operation.  Soon, it will become known that the dyslexic brain actually provides advantages that non-dyslexic brains lack, and vice versa.  As with so many reveals in my lifetime, different is neither all bad nor all good; it’s just different. 

Excerpt:  “The percentage of dyslexic professionals in fields such as engineering, art and entrepreneurship is over twice the percentage of the dyslexic individuals in the general population”
