This is a great tool to help explain to someone without a neuro difference (like dyslexia) why being dyslexic has it’s perks.
Jill Bolte Taylor’s Original TED TALK
Because dyslexia was first noted as a disability, they did not have enough data to highlight the bonus abilities that come with it. Now we have data to support the heightened strengths and abilities of neuro different people.
One of those strengths being more right-brained, more present in the NOW of life. The moment at hand. Neurotypical people spend years trying to access this and work to reprogram their brains and we just flow into our right brain and translate the world through our right brain. It is one of the gifts of neurodiversity, once it is embraced.
Thanks for joining me on another neurodiversity education minute.
