Most professionals agreed that talents are important, eventually they come to focus exclusively on the serious business of reading remediation alone. We need to change this.
Most of us who are focusing on remediation, on fixing problems do not develop new understanding of special talents, especially talents that seem to have nothing to do with school and conventional academics . But may have everything to do with success in work and life. While all agree that talents are important, usually almost nothing is done and needless to say, that great talents have been wasted. We need to start Dyslexic- centered programs . As if talents of Dyslexics really do matter. We must not be mainly school centered as we are now. It is time for all of us to rethink what we should be doing in schools and colleges to prepare students for today’s global economy. Often our thinking is imprisoned by our deep assumption about what is essential for success in education, life and work. Careful investigation of the life and work, accomplishments of highly successful Dyslexics, whose insights and creativity are usually more important than book knowledge, will show us how wrong we can be. When we look at high success in entrerpreneurial business, artistic creation, technical design or scientific discovery, we understand that we need to focus on what is that the Dyslexics brain is doing much better than those around them. It is quite different from reading books, listening to lectures, and memorizing long lists of names and facts. Dyslexics frequently excel in high market value creative and entrepreneurial skills, while they often fail on low market value school- based skills.
Early identification and intervention is also very important. The younger the child, the more effective is the intervention , prior to the child failing in school. According to the professor Julie Logan at London Cass business school, the primary reason why the US has a greater number of Dyslexics entrepreneurs is because the US has a better system for identification, intervention and support of those with Dyslexia at a young age, giving them much better chance of success. The UK system fails to identify Dyslexia at a young age, meaning that many of those with potential to be successful entrepreneurs never get the chance. We should be producing more Richard Bransons, but the system is failing our children. Professor Logan continues, lesson should encourage both left and right brain learning and encourage softskill development. Dyslexics need to be placed in a more holistic and practical teaching settings which will foster their skills and enhance their potential. This approach would produce a more flourishing entrepreneurial society
I hope this article will helpful to the teachers and parents , those spend their time with the students , who are struggling to get results in them.
