This article by Judy Endow does come from the field of Autism but I have found the problem sometimes in my dyslexic clients: They have great ideas, wonderful stories and a lot of insight worth sharing – but what eventually comes out of their mouth is a poor copy of it. Pictures are not in a linear form, as the language that describes them. A lot of the value of a picture gets lost in translation and unfortunately stops some people from even trying to convey their valuable input.

Mrs. Endow does give some very useful tips on how to best overcome that obstacle, several strategies that have worked well for her and might work for you too. You don’t have to be autistic to have an avalanche of images and usually it is not only verbally, but also the written form can be a huge struggle.

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
