Creativity While Dealing With Dyslexia

Dyslexics people have trouble reading, writing, spelling, but often do well in other areas. Many dyslexics are drawn to the arts and can be creative. Research has not shown a direct correlation between creativity and learning disabilities. This doesn't mean people with learning disabilities aren't creative.

It is believed that dyslexic artists such as Leonardo da Vinci or Pablo Picasso were dyslexic. You can even read about the Influence of Dyslexia on Pablo Picassos Artistic Skills from various resources online.

It is natural to focus one's efforts and attention on an area that is rewarding and comes naturally. 

For example, artistic ability. According to the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, high levels of creativity among dyslexics are simply a result of their dedication and time spent learning new ways of learning.

Amazing artistic abilities allow you to see the shape from different angles and create objects from them. Jones (2016) also states that "most dyslexics think in images rather than words" (Jones 2016). This is partly due to the activation in the brain's portions. 

As a result, what other people consider creative or innovative is second nature for a dyslexic.
