Is it normal to wonder what life’s like with dyslexia?

I somewhat fascinated by the disorder, and I’m curious what reading will be like, and how they’re able to memorize the correct spelling.

Is It Normal?

  • when i was in elementary school we had this disability awareness type of day where we had to try out various disabilities, for dyslexia i remember they told us to try to write but instead of looking at the paper looking only into a mirror that was facing the paper. idk how accurate that it, I think it was more to show how difficult it is for them. I also remember reading flowers for algernon, I've known people irl who write how that book is initially written (phonetically?), i assume those people are dyslexic

      • Dyslexia isn't like any of these things for me. My brain manifests thought patterns differently. For instance someone may say something positive and I will read it sarcastically. Or someone will write a simple explination and I will read it as complex.

        Dyslexia, as it has been explained to me, is different for everyone, but the similarity is in how we process information in a non linear fashion.

        So I can solve ridiculously complex math in my head just by looking at it, but if you say, "I am tired", I will try to process all connotations and meanings of tired, before I arrive at the conclusion that you're sleepy.

        I hope that helps.

        One more thing. It is similar to your example in that word placement and letter placement is largely irrelevant in processing information. This is why lanfuage subtlety eludes us.

      • And yes. I can read what you wrote, sort of in the same way you see a magic eye picture come into focus.

        • I've actually never been able to see those ever. I can read backwards and scrambled though.

    • I’ve understood Dyslexcia more as the letters appear incomplete. Such as the o may look more like a “c.”

      • There are many forms of it. It basically means you have trouble reading. So the diagnosis is vague and describes an assortment of people with various neurological reading problems.

    • Don't take the experiment you did to mean that we see things that way. What that lesson tries to do is make you feel the same way we do when you see things from a difficult perspective.

      One interesting fact. Google and Microsoft employ dyslexics to come up with predictive text algorithms and smart searches. 😊

    • Dyslexics don't see things backwards. I think most people can read backwards text just fine too.
