The Dyslexic Talent: thinking in 3-D
Basically, he discovered that at the root of dyslexia is a perceptual talent - the ability to make 3-D images, and to be able to travel through these images in much the same way as computers use virtual reality.
These images, although imaginary, are perceived as reality - and while they are happening, the person's perception of the real physical world is distorted.
It was Einstein's dyslexic talent that enabled him to lie on a sunny bank watching a sunbeam through half-closed eyes and then to change his perception to be actually travelling on that sunbeam and seeing what the world looked like from that perspective.
The rest is history, as they say, and the world now benefits from these ideas.
It is this thinking style which is behind dyslexic symptoms
This talent can sometimes cause difficulties. It can become an automatic reaction to confusion about letters and words, for example. Then a person's perception of the real physical world is distorted, and so for them words really can be moving on the page.
This thinking style is also behind dyspraxia
If their confusion occurs while moving about, a person may be clumsy and accident-prone (dyspraxic) because of this real-world distortion.
