According to Yvelette Stines, published author, teacher and blogger, dyslexia is simply a different way of learning. “Many people call it a disability, I call it an ability to learn a different way and accept it. Being dyslexic means you have to be creative, because you learn and process differently with the mind. Some folks are genius in math and others have a strong passion for foreign language. I am dyslexic and proud of all that I’ve accomplished thus far.”
Yvelette learned she was dyslexic in ninth grade. After failing several spelling tests while acing the vocabulary part of the tests, her teachers noticed a pattern. Although, it was challenging and shocking for her parents in the beginning, the family accepted the diagnosis, introduced a tutor into the mix and learned how to cope and press RESET on dyslexia.
