This is in fact the farthest explanation from the truth. Hallahan and Kaufman define dyslexia as an impairment in the ability to read p.
Linguistics A common assumption is that people think in language, and that language and thought influence each other. The strong version of the Sapir—Whorf hypothesis in linguistics states that language determines thought, and that linguistic categories alone limit and determine cognitive categories.
Although Whorf himself framed linguistic relativity in terms of "habits of mind" rather than determinism, the revolutionary nature of his hypothesis was met with much misinterpretation and criticism.
InBrent Berlin and Paul Kay rejected the strong hypothesis using a color terminology study. Theory of multiple intelligences Gardner's multiple intelligences theory recognises various forms of intelligence, namely spatial, linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic.
Areas of competence may be reinforcing, but also mutually exclusive. In today's society the link between IQ and education has weakened, but the idea of educated and intelligent has become synonymous, interchangeable; reinforced by verbalizers being better able to internalize information, advocate systems and design jobs that monetarily reward strengths, a cycle that is self-perpetuating.
Split-brain According to Roger Sperry the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere perform different tasks. The left and right hemisphere may be simultaneously conscious in different, even mutually conflicting, mental experiences that run in parallel.
The right [non-verbal] hemisphere perceives, thinks, remembers, reasons, wills and emotes, all at a characteristically human level. Spatial—temporal reasoning and Spatial visualization ability Spatial-temporal reasoning is the ability to visualize special patterns and mentally manipulate them over a time-ordered sequence of spatial transformations.
Eidetic memory Eidetic memory photographic memory may co-occur in visual thinkers as much as in any type of thinking style as it is a memory function associated with having vision rather than a thinking style.
R Jaensch states that eidetic memory apart of visual thinking has to do with eidetic images fading between the line of the after image and the memory image. Learning styles The acknowledgement and application of different cognitive and learning stylesincluding visual, kinesthetic, musical, mathematical and verbal thinking styles, are a common part of many current teacher training courses.
There is significant evidence that the widespread "meshing hypothesis", the assumption that a student will learn best if taught in a method deemed appropriate for the student's learning style, is invalid. Hinselwood expanded on 'word blindness' to describe the reversing of letters and similar phenomena in the s.
Autism and Nonverbal learning disorder Visual thinking has been argued by Temple Grandin to be an origin for delayed speech in people with autism. On the other hand, visual images, paintings in particular, caused the reliances on "illusionary images"  However, in the Western world, children begin primary school with abstract thought and shapes, but as we grow older, according to Rudolf Arnheim, "arts are reduced to a desirable supplement"  The general world trend in the late twentieth century caused an emphases towards scientific, mathematical, and quantitative approach to education, and art education is often refuted because it is based on perception.
It is qualitative and subjective which makes it difficult to measure and evaluate. However, fundamentals in visual thinking lay the ground work for many design disciplines such as art and architecture. Two of the most influential aspects of visual composition in these disciplines are patterns and color.
Patterns are not only prevalent in many different aspects of everyday life, but it is also telling about our interpretation of the world.
In addition, there are now studied approaches to how color should be used in design where "the functional aesthetics of colour can be reduced to a small number of guidelines and lists the main properties needed to make design decisions leading to visual clarity".
Sketches offer an unrestrained way to get thoughts down on paper through the "abstract representations of ideas and idea structures". Despite all the advantages of integrating art and visuals into education, it is a difficult skill to master.
Those who can are well versed in visual analysis. It takes a lot of practice to have sketches evolve from "meaningless scribbles" to a complex "thinking tool".Placing an order on our user-friendly website is quick and secure.

The term dyslexia comes from Greek, and means difficulty with words (McClure, , p. 86). A neurobiological disorder, it can vary in severity, and fluctuate over time, but can impact reading.
