Dyslexia As a Disease?
Why do people think of Dyslexia as a Disease? Many feel it is the lazy approach to not understanding Dyslexia.
The push to call those with Dyslexia as a Disease and Ill minded is in full force. Educators to the uneducated are starting to think of people with Dyslexia as being Disordered or Diseased. It has become thought of and made fun of like Leoparcy. Dyslexia has become an excuse to ridicule and taunt separation instead of distinction in modernist early 21st century.
Some History of Dyslexia
Back in the days in of 1955 and 1960 there were notices in homeschooling of some students who were different thinkers than most. In fact their thinking created a second consideration of many topics and designed educational concepts. If you taught something to one of these people they would surely understand the points of the teaching and then input a different opinion and consideration.
Instead of seeing exactly what they were taught they were able to see the inverted values of the topic. As the highly trained university and long term studious types would sit in awe with consideration about a topic of consideration the Dyslexic would ponder it and come up with an alternative suggestion rather than the same exact thinking as the others.
After a lot of work and communicating some educational types and learned people started to identify Dyslexics as “out of the box thinkers” or “idea people”. As many out of the box thinkers were considered “borderline genius”. As immediately as an architectural drawing was placed before their eyes the dyslexic or out of the box thinker would back engineer the concepts and add to the design ideas.
No one knew why or what was the mechanical processes of these very few people within the population but everyone was either jealous or appreciative of their concepts implemented. It wasn’t that these people were smarter in book value or had memorized encyclopedias but their contributions were unique and different than others.
As agencies developed and intelligence formed Nasa came into existence. They too would seek out as other companies would also these ingenious people within the population which later became known as “Dyslexics”. Even though the highest intelligence agencies would seek out this section of the population it would happen to become that the jealousy of the thinking and the challenges of opposite thinking outside of applied fields would be complained about by the educators.
The reality was that until Dyslexics have an applied medium they don’t fit into the regular public structures. It is also true that everyone liked AL (Einstein) when he was working on applied mediums. But many people did not want to give him the time of day or sit and listen to his incredible mindset outside his applied fields, which was their own losses, not his.
The effort in seeking out Dyslexics to fine tune their abilities which were still being understood was forthright. In fact it has been said that over 1/2 of Nasa employees have some form of Dyslexia. When the agencies are able to empower a Dyslexic or when a Dyslexic empowers themselves by applying their unique points of juncture in life incredible things happen including reverse thinking considerations that linear people struggle with.
Linear people actually need to turn the pages around to see the different angles rather than just being able to rotate the pictures they see in reverse order.
What was and frankly still is a sought out dilemma of finding the creative Dyslexic types of employees and people has became an educational dilemma. As regulation helps organize education yet the first thing that the Dyslexic individuals think of is the reverse options of the points of the educators who usually have not considered the alternative non-linear elements to the education materials.
We have a serious issue in society as society decides to mock the difficulties of being linear which the majority of people are. Yet the creative Dyslexics need a path to applied functioning rather than a regimented instruction.
Education has become more about instructing what is proper than figuring out options. It is highly likely that the education systems will continue to involve and this onset of calling Dyslexia types Diseased is just a road bump in the histories of society.
Learning inverted reading examples as Dyslexic Readers read is key. Once alternatives are learned of word combinations reading becomes easier.
What is certain is that it is a scape goat of society to call Dyslexia a disease when so many of the functioning parts of society were created by the out of box thinking and ingenuity of the Dyslexic inventors and contributors.
The Mechanics of Dyslexia
Dyslexia mechanics are simple to understand if you are open to understanding them. Linear people usually have an objective onset. Linear people understand things only in one fashion. When they see something they see it only as it is in front of their faces. What is right side up is right side up what is the bottom corner remains the bottom corner as they view it.
The Dyslexia mechanics can stare or look at an image straight on and be able to see the bottom right hand corner in the top left hand corner without moving their head or the picture. They also see the same linear aspect as well as the 8 or so possible other contours and options of reverse imaging functions.
To be clear. A Dyslexic does not need to pick up the painting and turn it around to see the precise details of the painting upside down. The Dyslexic person often and normally functions with the ability to reverse image everything that they see. If you think of Dyslexia as a Disease you miss understanding what is Dyslexia.
Question: Does a Dyslexic Person get Dizzy?
Answer: Good Question. Because the Dyslexic person usually sees reverse imaging on a daily and minute by minute basis they adjust to that being who and what they are. It doesn’t make them dizzy per sae.
Factual intelligent testings are the ability to problem solve surrounding the concepts of reverse imaging. You can’t figure out many puzzles or problem solve without the ability to at least consider the different options or reverse order of how things are to figure out how to solve things.
If you are having to think linearly to go through each and every option you may be a very smart person and go through all of your options but you are not Dyslexic.
The Dyslexic person actually consistently see’s the world in a rotational order. It is a simple yet profound reality of Dyslexia that the order of which their brain processes continually reverses their images they see from their sight.
What is Certain about Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a sought after asset. The ability to be able to juncture functioning in non-linear ways is the holy grail of artistry. It is the ability to function knowingly inside of an area with considerations of what is outside the areas.
Whether Ivy League or Educational demeaning takes place on forcing the ideals that Dyslexia is a Disease it is an asset to the individual. Learning to apply an asset is a difficult process and isolating the encompassing talents of any unique thinking or points of view take time, patience, and practice.
Considering Dyslexia as a disease is the poor outlook that does not fully encompass the talents and intelligence of that population. Why do people think of Dyslexia as a Disease when the reality is that Dyslexics are often the brightest and most creative in the population.
To understand why people think of Dyslexia as a Disease you have to understand Dyslexia. It is a laziness and immediateness of results desired that is causing society to think of Dyslexia as a disease. It is easier and more convenient to regiment a linear system then a diverse one.
Problem solving is the primary function of survival and Dyslexia thinkers solve more problems in society than the average population. The ridicule of society diminish its own intelligence based upon how the region dictates how they treat people with Dyslexia. It is societies loss in their failure to cultivate even by simple means of patience the Dyslexia population.
It is possible that the onset of current events to state that Dyslexia populations are stupid, dumb and disease will lesson the ingenuity that society has to create with.
The less that people within communities have to become linear the more individually appreciated they are. Current social media outlooks are about arguing opinions about who is right and wrong versus inclusion and appreciation for different outlooks.
Although it is inconvenient to consider an outlook that is not your own linear thinking it is a benefit. Dyslexia populations often will leave communities that are cruel to them and their ingenuity gets taken outside of those communities.
When society thinks of Dyslexia as a disease society itself looses traction to include all types of peoples and mindsets. There is hope that with acceptance of different points of view that the inclusion of Dyslexia populations can continue to benefit linear populations.
