THE GIRL WHO’S GOT EVERYTHING – SMART, CREATIVE AND DYSLEXIC !
Rebecca Constable has been honoured by the British Dyslexia Association as a winner in the Adult category of their Annual Awards, 2017.
Rebecca is a gifted graphic artist and creative writer. She is self-possessed, always attractively turned out, with long dark hair and a ready smile. Rebecca is a final year student of Theatre Design at Nottingham Trent University. She is the model of a high achiever training to go into a creative industry. And she is dyslexic.
Rebecca shares with all dyslexic people a degree of discomfort with the printed word.
She also shares with many dyslexic people a high level of intelligence and a high degree of creativity.
Creativity is often a great deal stronger in dyslexic individuals than in others, which leads many to see it as a compensating gift.
The brain processes pictures much faster than words. The fact is that many dyslexic people think visually rather than verbally. They are quick thinking. Often, dyslexic people are naturally intuitive. Add to that a powerful dose of curiosity, and there you have the basis of a strong creative urge.
All original ideas start with creativity. The creative process drives us to innovate; find ground-breaking solutions to all manner of problems; invent completely new things and new ways of doing things.
Creativity allows us to imagine things that don't yet exist. Creativity writes our future. For Rebecca, as for many other dyslexic people, it is a gift, indeed.
You can see Rebecca’s award-winning book here. Dyslexic individuals often find one colour works better than others for them to read from, so there is a choice of six versions each with a different tint to the pages.
There are no other books published with a choice of coloured pages. This book is truly unique. See for yourself.
The six versions of the book have identical content. If it doesn’t help you to have a particular tint, pick your favourite colour just for fun. You will find all the colours demonstrated in the “Champagne” version, with the full text of “Impact” on cream.
IMPACT by Rebecca Constable, published by Dayglo Books May 2017
