Dyslexia Help

Researching Dyslexia Help can seem daunting at first, but here at Footnotes, we celebrate it!

There are many famous celebrities, pioneers, authors, and inventors whose names you would recognise, who have dyslexia. We give tribute to these kinds of people who found their way forward in their differences. Even despite being misunderstood by others, and possibly having been labelled as having a learning disability or being ‘slow’. Dyslexia did not hold them back in life, but rather, we benefit today from the many contributions that they have made in bringing their unique gifts forward.

Did you know that Thomas Edison who invented the light bulb  had dyslexia, so did Albert Einstein, Jennifer Aniston and Steven Spielberg ?!

…..What would you do, if you knew you couldn’t fail?

Dyslexic Abilities

At Footnotes we like to think of dyslexia as more of an ability than a ‘dis’ability. We have seen how differences in learning styles when given the environment in which to flow, allows for expanded – even enhanced- ability and creativity.

We believe that those labelled with dyslexia often need to dual process and even multi layer their thinking to be able to better function. This ‘seeing the big picture’ approach is regularly the opposite advice given to so called ‘slow learners’ who are deemed to need ‘bite sized’ pieces of information in something of a formatted structure.

Visual thinking allows you to work in your own way, and that’s exactly what the Footnotes strategies do. The techniques enable you to capture thoughts when you don’t yet know if they’re important, and work out how to communicate them, value them, order them, present them, or make decisions with them. They also allow you to promote those ideas, whilst making sure that your integrity and vision is safely maintained.
