I din't think many people idolise individuals in regards to not having dyslexia. People treat dyslexics like junk because they (the perpetrators) have done sense of insecurity that they need to make up for. If they see a weakness in others, they capitilise on it to show how they (the perpetrators) are "better." They do it in any fault they don't have to fear will ever be one of their own.
Fact: What we know from all the studies and data is that people with dyslexia are almost always above average in intelligence. All brains compute information differently. Those who put down dyslexics are a bit behind in their education and their manners. Avoid them. All educational systems have room for those with learning disabilities to demonstrate their learning in various ways, usually verbally. A dyslexic needs help to arrange this, but they also need to ask for alternative arrangements. This can be done quietly. Dyslexics can go to university. I know one with three degrees. She never did any school work after 5:00 p.m. She got scholarships too.
I agree that many people do that, but I hope you realize that there are a lot of people who are not like that. I don't have dyslexia, but I have friends who do, and I would NEVER put them down for this because in so many ways they are so much smarter than I am, I'm constantly asking for their help in things they are better at than I am. We ALL have shortcomings. And people who can't recognize that are very close-minded. And who wants someone like that to be our friend anyway??? Just try to see that not everyone will look down on you or make fun of you. It just may take a while to find true friends, but, when you do, they will support you and always be there for you and will never put you down. But you also need to remember that to have a friend you have to BE a friend.
They're immature and ill-informed; and dyslexia has nothing to do with intelligence. Try not to let them get you down. These people are idiots and not worth your time. There are a lot of famous people with dyslexia: Tom Cruise, Robin Williams, Henry Ford, Albert Einstein, just to name a few. Google "famous people with dyslexia" and you'll see. Maybe name a few of them the next time they start picking on you.
