I have a dyslexic grandson and just came across this article which I thought
might be of interest to art teachers whether you have any dyslexic
students or not.

The article focuses on visual/spatial thinking as compared to visual/verbal
processing and two areas in which dyslexics may be outstanding:
"The understanding/awareness/management of 3D form and space;
The understanding/awareness/management of innovative composition. "

Anyone have any observations to share related to visual /spatial thinking?
