We at Footnotes, like to think of dyslexia as more of an ability than a ‘dis’ability. We have seen how differences in learning styles when given an environment in which to flow, allows for expanded – even enhanced- ability and creativity.
That’s why we believe it’s so important that individuals showing dyslexic tendencies are encouraged to focus on the very characteristic which in some learning and working environments are deemed a negative rather than a positive attribute.
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. This is one of the reasons why Footnotes can be so quick to help to transform an individuals perception of themselves and the world around them. Its simple, yet effective at showing an individual what they are really capable of.
