We are pretty much a family of dyslexics and if I am not tweeting about nursing, social media or cats you can bet that the tweet will be around dyslexia. The lovely @DiverseLearners brought this tweet to my attention today (original tweet by @ChrisMulryan) :

As a mum with dyslexia to 3 children with dyslexia this really resonated with me – I love that both Aunt and Niece in this audio clip say that dyslexia is a superpower and that dyslexic are everywhere!! Dyslexia to me is all about seeing things differently and often more creatively – though often it can be a pain, especially when I notice a carefully crafted tweet has a spelling mistake .. and they always seem to be the ones that get RTed the most !!! Dyslexics are definitely everywhere in our house … we hate writing Christmas cards (so don’t expect one dear reader!) none of us knows how to spell (constant “how do you spell …?” questions are asked) however we are full of creativity and have an awful lot of “what if ….” conversations; but most importantly, and this is where we are similar to the Aunt and Niece in the clip, we are able to smile about it and view it positively.
Thanks for sharing this with me Kerry …. its great to be both wearing my pants outside my tights and never be alone 😀
