Dyslexia and Imagination!
More than what meets the eye!
Imagination is the backbone of resourcefulness. The creativity leveraged in this process is the heart of breakthroughs. It’s not just about improving what’s around but creating something new and purposeful. Envisioning an ecosystem that includes diverse outlooks is the sign of a progressive society. The question worth considering here is, can a skill like imagination be cultivated? Is there any difference between people with and without dyslexia in terms of creativity?
The dyslexics and non-dyslexics matrix!One of the main distinguishing factors between dyslexics and non-dyslexics is that non-dyslexics think in words while dyslexics think in pictures, which is more conceptual and faster in comparison to thinking in words, which is usually 150 words a minute. Since the processing of thoughts in forms of pictures is too fast and with lots of other detailed information that adds more concept, the end result is less cohesion and disorientation. Example: A dyslexic may not be able to perform ordinary tasks well, but can be brilliant in building a great Lego art.
