A positive dyslexia mindset

In this video, I talk about the importance of a positive and liberating dyslexia mindset.

Externalising Dyslexia Approach

Does your dyslexia mindset work for you?

If the way you view dyslexia works for you and you are able to achieve the outcomes you want in education and/or life, then keep things exactly the way they are – you’re doing well! 

However, if your current dyslexia mindset isn’t working for you and you want to achieve more in education and/or life, then feel free to follow the 9 steps outlined below. 

You can ask me questions about the Externalising Dyslexia Approach on our Facebook type News Feed (you’ll need to join our Dyslexia Community to access this) or send me a private message.

Externalise

Step 1: Explore perception of dyslexia and challenge false assumptions that create the social construct of dyslexia.

Step 2: Externalise the cause of dyslexia so that dyslexia is no longer viewed as part of genetic makeup.

Step 3: Create non-dyslexic identity that views self as someone orientated to use natural mediums of expression such as music, singing, dance, art, physical movement, rather than the  artificial medium of expression written language.   

Overcome

Step 4: Explore perception of dyslexia difficulties and challenge false assumptions about learning. 

Step 5: Externalise the cause of dyslexia difficulties so that difficulties are no longer viewed to stem from genetic makeup. 

Step 6:  Incorporate into non-dyslexic identity the view of self as someone able to master reading, writing, and arithmetic skills; along with other skills that were previously out of reach due to view that difficulties stemmed from genetic makeup.  

 

Achieve

Step 7: Explore perception of achievement and challenge false assumptions that might act as barriers to achievement. 

Step 8: Externalise the view that low achievement levels were/are caused by dyslexia difficulties linked to genetic makeup. 

Step 9: Incorporate into non-dyslexic identity the view that achievement is dependent on factors that are in your control such as levels of commitment, motivation, perseverance, and determination.
