  1. Spatial reasoning: According to scientists at the University of East London, young dyslexics are excellent at remembering a virtual environment when compared to non-dyslexics. Therefore it is not uncommon for dyslexics to succeed in fields like engineering, industrial and graphic design, architecture, and construction.

  2. Imaginative: It comes as no surprise to learn that artists, actors, and authors, who are dyslexic have a keen sense of curiosity and interest. In addition, they make great use of their imaginations and have a fantastic view of the world.
