After discovering that I was Dyslexia, The support and guidance I recieved was outstanding. Which reflected in my grades and engagement in to the subject which I was studying.
Dyslexia affects people in different ways. I found out that my left side of my brain which manages my logic, sequencing, linear thinking, mathematics, facts & thinking in words was the worst affected areas. Whilst my right side, imagination, holistic thinking, intuition, arts, rhythm, nonverbal cues, feelings visualisation, daydreaming where my strongest skills.
