If you have dyslexia or think you do (like me), this meetup is for you. There are limited resources for adult dyslexics to learn about this different style of learning. This meetup aims to create a community of individuals with this particular learning difference were we can learn about each other's struggles and successes, and hopefully help others tap into their strengths and identify their weaknesses.
Here's a little about dyslexia:
Dyslexia is an umbrella term for a variety of related symptoms. Different people may experience dyslexia for different reasons and in different ways.
Much research suggests that the root source of dyslexia is something called a phonological deficit. Phonology means the relationship between speech sounds in a language. The phonological deficit may explain why many adults with dyslexia have trouble breaking words down into smaller parts.
Some brain imaging studies suggest that this phonological deficit occurs in the left hemisphere of the brain, which is associated with processing words and language. So, when a person with dyslexia reads, the left hemisphere of the brain does not work in the same way as it does when a person without the condition reads. The two hemispheres of the brain may also communicate differently in people who have dyslexia.

Try this DYSLEXIA TEST if you'd like. It's just a screening tool so it won't determine if you have dyslexia, but the questions give you insights about the dyslexic brain:
