Recently someone wrote to a national newspaper to enquire whether it was possible to find a fulfilling job with his learning difficulties. Two interesting replies were printed the following week. One offered practical advice, but it was the reply from Hilla Joshi that struck a chord. She asked that her original spelling and punctuation be preserved and wrote:
To begin dyslexia is a gift. Its juts that the worlf and educatipo does not agree. Because we challenge the orm.
Being dyslexic, life has not been esay. … So what if you’r clumsy, cant spell; Your wiring is unique!!,.
Remember we’re blue sky, outside the box, creative thinkers, when not depressed because the outside world labels our lack of conformity as disrtupitive, studip and thick. My mind can work at twice the speed, problem solve, see the bigger picture and bring resolution where most are stuck at first base.
…honesty has done wonders and is appreciated because of the talenta and skills i bring.
