are their strengths.
Identify your child's super powers
Individuals with dyslexia might struggle with reading, writing and spelling, but they exchange these difficulties for strengths in other areas. Dyslexic individuals are extremely creative and can have gifts in cognitive and emotional areas, according to the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity. At Phillips Fundamental Learning Center, we call these strengths super powers.
Some of the areas dyslexic people excel in can include science, problem solving, empathy, art, visual-spatial abilities and more. While we can teach dyslexic people to read, we cannot teach these gifts that dyslexic individuals are given at birth. We love to help dyslexic children discover their super powers! We do this by helping them self-identify their strengths and encouraging them to pursue them.
Identifying dyslexic children’s super powers can give them the confidence they need to forge ahead in school and reach their loftiest dreams.
