June 24th is National Writing Day even for dyslexics

June 22 03:15 2021

The problem

When Audrey Lawrence was a child, literacy campaigns and writing initiatives like National Writing Day on June 24th felt like torture; with the challenge of dyslexia, this seemly pleasurable task became overwhelming.

Children can’t be what they can’t see.

With skyrocketing dyslexia diagnosis’ Audrey thought it would be a great idea to share her story of how even with severe dyslexia, she became an author. Audrey wanted to serve as a role model for other dyslexics. *Authors with this learning disability make up less than one percent of the population, and Audrey knew children couldn’t be what they couldn’t see.

Audrey felt the tools and tips she used to write a book would be invaluable to other dyslexics. Hence, she started a resource page and even interviewed on YouTube world-class dyslexia thought-leaders and TEDx speaker Dean Bragionier about tools for people with dyslexia.

Audrey’s book Mastering The Art Of Self-Disruption simplifies tools and tricks for goal reaching that allowed her to go back to school and learn data science from MIT while embracing her severe dyslexia.
