I was homeschooled through high school, so I was blessed with the ability to use my dyslexic strengths to follow my passions in designing and creating, which you can read more about on the other pages of this website. When I was little, I struggled to read Dr. Seuss and mostly just memorized the pages. When I was 11, my dad noticed I made the same mistakes in spelling that he made, so he researched how to teach kids to spell. In that process, he realized I was dyslexic as was he and my sister. Later that year, I got tested for dyslexia and after a 4-hour test in which I scored in the top 2% for ‘fluid intelligence’ and the bottom 2% in ‘sounds of spelling’, it was concluded that I was definitely dyslexic. My mom tutored me with the Barton Reading and Spelling curriculum for 4 years and I enjoy reading! But the best part is I never lost the gifts that come from having a dyslexic brain. My hope with this website is to spread the word that dyslexia can be a gift, you just need to learn how to read and spell differently and no dyslexic should feel they're broken.
