Dyslexia is my Superpower - gallery 2

By Dyslexia Scotland | 13 Oct 2017

These inspiring art works were submitted by children and young people from Scotland and further afield for Margaret Rooke’s new book Dyslexia is my Superpower (most of the time!). Margaret only got to pick a few for her book, so we're getting the chance to show off the rest on Dyslexia Unwrapped!

7. 'Swimming' - Isla, age 12, Scotland. Isla drew a picture of her swimming because she loves to swim. Isla says: "I like swimming because it lets me forget if something was hard at school and have fun".

Issac's mum says: "Isaac has filled up so many sketchbooks with drawings in this style of his and I think working on this drawing has actually helped him accept his dyslexia more".
