Celebrating Learning Disabilities and Challenging the “Norm”

It’s October which means Learning Disabilities Awareness Month. Help us spread the word. Let’s start with celebrating DYStinctive Thinking!

DYStinctive Thinking

Don’t worry, we are not ignoring the spell-check that tells us distinctive doesn’t have a y in it. We spelled it that way on purpose. Individuals with dyslexia learn differently than those without dyslexia.

Their brains work differently than those without dyslexia.

They see the world differently than those without dyslexia.

They hear the world differently than those without dyslexia.

They experience the world differently than those without dyslexia.

 

They create a different world!

 

A brain with DYSlexia is more than plain distinctive – it’sDYStinctive.

At SLD Center, we celebrate that DYStinctive thinking. We know that it could take quite a bit of work to help the other 85% of the world’s brains see it “our” way, but we’re up for it. After all, facing challenges every day is one of the things DYStinctive thinkers do best!
