  • Dyslexics tend to develop very strong imaginations or visual thinking. Dyslexics use a picture or feeling based reasoning process to solve problems rather than a verbal one. If they are at first confused (or intrigued), they will visualise or imagine an object and move around it and look at it from different viewpoints or angles.  From this thought process, they develop many unique abilities and talents in areas such as: 
  • spatial awareness, reading people, strategic planning, music /dancing, Engineering manual skills, artistic ability, Building, piloting vehicles, Designing, arts-drama/roleplay, inventing & story telling
