The Who's Who of Dyslexics

Dyslexia is a gift!

Tom CruiseAlthough dyslexia creates difficulties in different areas for individuals, people with the dyslexic thinking style have a natural ability, a talent, something special that enhances the individual. Dyslexics don’t all develop the same gifts, but some common abilities they share are:

  • Can use the brain’s ability to alter and create perceptions

  • Are highly aware of the environment

  • Are more curious than average

  • Think mainly in pictures instead of words

  • Are highly intuitive and insightful

  • Think and perceive multi-dimensionally (using all the senses)

  • Can experience thought as reality

  • Have vivid imaginations

With appropriate help, “these basic abilities will result in two characteristics: higher-than-average intelligence and extraordinary creative abilities. From these the true gift of dyslexia can emerge – the gift of mastery.” Here are just some of thousands of examples of well-known dyslexic people whose “genius didn’t occur in spite of their dyslexia, but because of it!” (Ronald D. Davis, The Gift of Dyslexia © 1994)
