Lou Salza's insight:

Wisdom about dyslexia to be found even in the gossip columns! We will take what we can get! Share this with young women and men who follow the royals! --Lou

 

Excerpt:

 

"According to Hello! magazine, Princess B said: "Dyslexia is not a pigeonhole to say you can't do anything. It is an opportunity and a possibility to learn differently. You have magical brains, they just process differently. Don't feel like you should be held back by it.

"I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was seven and it was a bit of a struggle to begin with. It was a challenge as I began my school career – spelling and reading was something I couldn't really get my head around."

But, she added, it was JK Rowling's Harry Potter that really got her into reading: "The second the story came out, I couldn't put it down. Now I read so much quicker, so much better and I studied history at university which involved a lot of reading."
