About this product
- DescriptionDyslexia impacts many areas of life! Okay - every area of life. It is so much more than a reading problem. It impacts childhood in such a powerful way that Dyslexia can launch a child into a life of creativity and success or plunge them into a life of depression and fear. Everything depends on the support of teachers, family and friends. That's you! As Dyslexics grow up their unique way of seeing the world influences their goals for the future, and also can influence the way they relate to their friends and lover(s). Dyslexia shows up on the job. Dyslexia shows up in the marriage. Dyslexia shows up in parenting styles and even in the way we relate to God and impact the world around us with our vision. Dyslexia is a way of thinking, living and imagining what life should be like. Dyslexia is a brain that thinks in 3D movies and can vividly see things that don't even exist yet, in their mind's eye. Dyslexia figures out how to turn a good idea, or a bad one, into reality. Dyslexia is an artist, an inventor, an architect, a storyteller, a politician, a teacher, a scientist, a chef, a director, an engineer, a world traveler and a faithful friend. In elementary school Dyslexia doesn't LOOK like a genius, Dyslexia can't look at a flat page, white with black letters all over it. In school that is what kids are expected to do for hours on end! BUT Dyslexia learns from the real world, and thing in the real world is black, white and flat. Teachers don't always understand this because the dyslexic person is obviously brilliant. I kw because I suffered under the influence of several teachers who didn't see the gift and only focused on my problems, I even failed 3rd grade! Life eventually turned around for me and I began to thrive in 5th grade, with the help on a few people who believed in me. So how do I kw what it feels like to live a dyslexic life?

I liked the pencil sharpener at the front of the classroom. I liked the closets where we hung our jackets. Most of all, I liked watching the big clock in the front of the classroom... when the hour hand pointed to the big three. I became a daydreamer. I would doodle on my schoolwork. I would play with my pencils and make origami when the teacher wasn't looking. I would look out the window and imagine I was somewhere else. I felt like school was a waste of time, I wasn't even good at schoolwork; the letters swirled around on the page, and long lists of math facts made me dizzy. I wanted to go home and build cities in the sand pile. The kids at school would always smash the cities at the playground. If I had been born twenty years later, I suppose I would have been labeled with Dyslexia and maybe Asperger's Syndrome. In the right school, they may have even called me gifted. But in the 1980s, kids like me were considered immature and were called daydreamers. We became failures and were required to repeat whatever grades we couldn't pass. I told my teachers that I was going to be a mom and an artist, like my mom, so why should I even go to school? I was fourteen when I finally talked my parents into homeschooling me. That was when the woods became my classroom. That was when I fell in love with life and learning. That was when I met Josh. That was when the sky became my ceiling.
