DYSLEXIA & ATTENTION
One-forth of all Americans are Dyslexic. As there are seven different types of Dyslexia, many go undiagnosed. Since schools teach the Rote-Memory System, most of these students struggle through school -- if they make it at all. Many simply cannot read. Whenever they are given something to read, they put it aside and do their own thing. That brings another problem -- lack of concentration or a weakened attention span. This leads to many being misdiagnosed as Attention Deficit Disorder. Some estimates indicate of all ADD labeled students, up to 90% may be Dyslexic.
In reality, Dyslexia may be an asset. For instance, since most Dyslexics have a difficult time reading, they tend to develop their other senses more. They can utilize the brain's ability to change and create perceptions. They are more visual -- thinking in pictures more than words. They are highly intelligent and very creative. As long as the extended development of their other senses continues and is not destroyed by the school system and/or parents, Dyslexia can be a gift beyond the ability to read. Look at all the famous DYSLEXIC GENIUSES!

They did it BECAUSE of DYSLEXIA!
The people listed above may seem they had a miracle happen that made them who they became. So then, how can Dyslexics all around the world learn without a lot of reading?
Mental Photography / Subliminal Photography bypasses Dyslexia or the "inability to read."
Mental Photography / Subliminal Photography starts at 100 TIMES the average reading speed* or 25,000+ wpm. At this rate, Dyslexia cannot interfere with the assimilation of information because the information is not focused on by the eyes. The information is gained in full page format with 100 times the impact of reading.
*average reading speed is
approximately 250 words per minute
