The Creativity of Dyslexia

Just a lovely Easter story I got from a happy mum of a client:

Hi Barbara,

This is a happy story for you!

On Wednesday before Easter we went to ‘About Life’ in Cammeray for a grocery shop. There was a competition out to win a stuffed duck. The most creative name for the duck would win. My son came up with “Sir Cluckington.” The results were going to be communicated per phone or email on Good Friday. He said “Mammi, I’m sure I’m gonna win this” 😉😄.
Friday from 7 am he kept asking me if there had been an email. “No Darling, nothing yet,” I said. Sure enough, 5 pm we got a call and HE HAD WON THE DUCK!!! Because he had come up with the most creative name! He was so thrilled!! And I said: “See, that’s where Dyslexia really helps – it makes you really creative!!”

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.
