There are lots of challenges other than the usual ones such as difficulties with reading, writing and spelling. There is a positive side as well.
The positive features of dyslexia show up more as people mature into adulthood.
We know that dyslexic people often demonstrate strong spatial, visual and 3D skills. They often have the ability to see the big picture, and regularly come up with innovative solutions to complex problems.
They are often very empathetic, co-operative and collaborative which makes them great team members.
