Quick How to Tips for Mastering Dyslexia

First, ALWAYS believe in yourself. You are your biggest cheerleader, main advocate, and solely responsible for what you are able to achieve. When you give up on learning, learning will give up on you.

Never let anyone tell you that you are not as smart as everyone else. Someone with dyslexia has just as much of a capacity to learn as anyone else. People with dyslexia simply learn differently.

Use your tools! Use tape recorders during lectures, listen to books on tape, take a ton of notes, sit in the very front row smack dab in the middle, use computer tools. Basically, I would encourage you to at least try out the amazing tools that are offered to people with dyslexia today.

Make a buddy that gets it and help each other out. If you have a friend that understands what it is like to study with a learning disability you will have someone to vent to, study with, and bounce ideas off of. Find your right hand, and then use them!

Be your own biggest advocate and don’t take no for an answer. If you think you are the right person for that promotion at work don't stop going after it until you have achieved what you set out to achieve. Also, remember it is okay to let people know how talented and smart you are.

Don't get bogged down by the bullies. Some people are unhappy with themselves, so they will make a point to bully. A lot of the time they will target people who are insecure about something. These bullies will target people that are different. Don't let them get you down! Remember you are awesome.

Get your accommodations at school. This goes for elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and beyond. Schools nowadays really seem to try to be accommodating to the different learning styles. Most, if not all schools will offer accommodations to students with a diagnosed learning disability.

The ACT and SAT are important but not the end all be all of your existence. Do everything you can to be prepared for the test. Take it and try your best. But remember when it's over, it is what it is. You can succeed in other areas and use that to get into school. 

Get involved in everything you can. Being active and involved can help you stay motivated and engage in school. Having activities that you are apart of can help you get into college too.

Have letters of recommendation from people who recognize how hard you work. If you genuinely try in school that more than likely will not go unnoticed. Use the people that help you succeed in school as character references for things you want to do later in life.

Do things that play to your strengths. If you have ever heard the saying, “a fish out of water,” I recommend you do just the opposite. People that do what they are good at typically are able to find success in what they do. That makes to much sense, doesn't it?
