For students with ADHD, simply following a teacher's command such as "put your papers in your folder" can feel like a monumental task. The basic expectation in today's traditional education system is a real roadblock for students whose brains struggle to carry out common commands from start to finish.

Pulitzer Journalist with Dyslexia - Gareth Cook

Pulitzer Journalist with Dyslexia - Gareth Cook | LD and ADHD in the news | Scoop.it

"My wife knows. My family knows, as do a few close friends. But what would my co-workers think? My editors? My sources on the science beat?

 

When I imagine them knowing, I can't get an image out of my head: My seventh-grade English teacher, glaring at me, with a look that needed no words. You are lazy and stupid, Gareth. Why are you even wasting my time?


I am dyslexic.
Reading is slow for me. If I try to read aloud, it is halting, even with children's books. I can't spell.


I was never able to learn cursive, and I am virtually unable to take handwritten notes while someone is talking. If it weren't for a strange quirk in the disorder -- I can type notes and listen -- I could never have hidden my struggles at work, because I wouldn't be able to do my job at all....

 

I am writing this column reluctantly, because I don't know what people will think; a part of me probably still believes that I should be ashamed.
But I also have to write this, because I know there is at least one kid out there who is feelingthe despair that clawed at me for so many years. I want this kid to know: It's never going to be easy, but put your heart into it and you will blow them away." - Gareth Cook

 

Many children and adults with dyslexia are amazing storytellers, so it shouldn't be surprise that this Pulitzer Prize winning journalist is dyslexic. Dyslexics may have strengths at recognizing a good story, seeing an issue from different perspectives, analyzing complex and conflicting information, and being able to empathize in deep ways.
