A recent report, The Value of Dyslexia, published by Made by Dyslexia and EY, explores the ways in which dyslexia skills can be valuable additions to our changing world of work. Following on from last week’s profile case study of The Connector, here is our take on the Visualiser.
A Visualiser’s skills include the “ability to interact with space, sense, physical ideas and new concepts”.
Notable traits of a Visualiser include creativity and “big picture” thinking, including the ability to think outside of the box and develop fresh new ideas. These particular traits will be especially useful in the future of work, as technology continues to grow and the need for unique ideas becomes paramount.
