Dyslexia in Adults

Episode 46 - Thinking Differently About Dyslexic Strengths

This week's epsiode is a Rewind of one of our popular episodes, episode No.2 'Dyslexic Strengths'1

don't like to refer to dyslexia as a "Superpower".

I feel that terming dyslexia as a "Superpower" alienates people, I think it sets the bar too high, and I don't believe it truly highlights the reality of dyslexia in adults. 

I like to look at dyslexia strengths alongside the challenges and weaknesses. This is important as I believe it helps to recognise that the challenges and our strengths go hand-in-hand. 

Key topics:

- Talking about Dyslexic Strengths, 

- Not looking at Dyslexia as a "Superpower",

- How we can discuss dyslexic strengths in a better way, and

- How you can find your dyslexic strengths.


Dyslexia in Adults is Sponsored by Microsoft's Accessibility Software

The Be You campaign highlights how a range of Microsoft digital tools can make everyday life more accessible for people with Dyslexia, whether attending a university lecture, writing a best man speech or simply reading a large amount of text online. This campaign aims to reach people traditionally missing out on access to assistive technology, those that are potentially not accessing advice through education or workplace initiatives.
