In our book, The Dyslexic Advantage, we spoke about a cluster of dyslexia-associated strength patterns we found to be common in dyslexic people.
We used the acronym MIND to make these patterns more memorable:
M for Material Reasoning
I for Interconnected Reasoning
N for Narrative Reasoning
D for Dynamic Reasoning
These strength patterns are not rigid categories, but rather helpful ways of thinking about common features we have observed among dyslexic people.
MIND strengths are not exclusive to individuals with dyslexia, but they are common among individuals with dyslexia and linked to specific cognitive and structural patterns.
