In this episode, Rebecca talks with author, entrepreneur, mother, and fellow dyslexic Tiffany Sunday about learning by trying, throwing mud at walls, finding your community, identifying your ‘workarounds’, her inability to grasp phonics and learning to read by memorising words instead, knowledge-hungry brains, and failing upwards.
Tiffany Sunday is the author of Dyslexia’s Competitive Edge and You Posted What!?. Tiffany’s writing topics are fluid, ranging from entrepreneurship to technology, personal development, and how dyslexia is a competitive edge. She writes about topics she believes are important. Her books have sold in multiple countries including the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan and Australia. You can find out more about Tiffany on her website at http://www.tiffanysunday.com.
In 2015, she gave a fabulous TEDx Talk about dyslexia and entrepreneurship, Dyslexia 2.0: The Gift of Innovation and Entrepreneurial Mind.
Together, Rebecca and Tiffany explore the challenges dyslexics face, particularly with their options when seeking outside help and that the most important thing should always be, “What works for THIS child?”
