Dealing with dyslexia can be extremely hard and frustrating. Sometimes it can be helpful for students to hear the words of someone who has dealt with the same struggles and has found a way to give those struggles meaning. Below is one of my favorite quotes from someone with dyslexia:
While we shouldn’t gloss over the real challenges that dyslexia presents, it can be useful to help students perceive their dyslexia not just as something difficult to overcome, but as something that makes them strong.
