Please keep this in mind: one size does NOT fit all. We are all unique. We all enjoy different hobbies, food, music and movies. We all have different favorite subjects, like chemistry, geometry or history.  Most importantly, we all learn in different ways.


Famous dyslexic Henry Winkler wrote a note to me that said, “How you learn has NOTHING to do with how smart you are. That is the truth.”


Some of us learn better by hearing the information. Some of us prefer watching videos. Some of us

learn by building or experimenting.


The same is true with learning how to overcome dyslexia. Each person is different. Each method has produced “proven results” for some people, but not all. Sometimes the simplest answer is the best one, sometimes the most complicated or expensive one works. Sometimes it’s a combination.


In all cases, the right solution for you is something that only you can identify because you know yourself better than anyone. No one else can see through your eyes.


You’ll probably try several tools and methods that don’t work for you. Don’t get discouraged.

Thomas Edison, a dyslexic, tried over 1,000 different kinds of light bulb filaments before he found one that worked. When he was asked about his lack of results, he said:


I have gotten lots of results! If I find 10,000 ways something won't work, I haven't failed. I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is often a step forward.


He also said:


Just because something doesn't do what you planned it to do in the first place doesn't mean it's useless.  Surprises and reverses can serve as an incentive for great accomplishment.

Many of life's failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.


When you start to feel discouraged, remember Edison’s words. Don’t give up. You will find the method that works best for you!
