Over the years I've worked with many dyslexic clients. Usually it is an intelligent person that feels frustrated because they are unable to make sense of what they're reading and their spelling is atrocious.
Recently, I worked with a particularly bright man in his 40s. He made his alphabet from Clay and he mastered it and de-triggered all confusions with it, so he had certainty. He was intrigued when I said to him, that with this alphabet he could spell and write any words he liked. He was astounded by the power that if he felt from this. As we proceeded to master the punctuation symbols and to identify how these symbols would be used in writing, the sense of empowerment grew and his confidence grew with that.
As we mastered the trigger words, such as ‘it’ and ‘the’; my client was amazed that these words actually had a meaning and how they influenced the sentence. Prior to this, he hadn't really noticed most of these words, he might accidentally skip them or didn't think they served any function.
This client went on to do continued education in marketing and felt that he could write more accurately and could read and comprehend more easily. Using the tools that he learned and the simple techniques that he adopted, he managed to overcome years of frustration. His confidence grew and he understood how to reach his true potential. Feedback from the Marketing course was that his unique perspective was particularly interesting in the online forums, to which he contributed. This is the true Gift of Dyslexia. Once you remove the problems the gifts can be exposed.
