I mentioned the fact I have trouble making sense of traditional crochet patterns because my issues with dyslexia force me to concentrate on the abbreviations so much, I often miss the meat of the instructions. And I'm wondering, am I the only one who has this problem?
I know I'm not the only dyslexic. Statistically speaking about 20% of the population has dyslexia according to the literature Hubby was studying during his Orton-Gillingham* training. I'm just not sure if I'm the only one who gets tripped up trying to make heads or tails out of traditional knitting and crochet patterns. I mean, it's not like I've heard many other crafters complain of issues with patterns.
So, am I the only one?
* Orton-Gillingham tutors are ones trained specifically to help dyslexics gain reading, verbal, and mathematical fluency. The whole first half of the training is learning about the cause of dyslexia and the myriad of issues, both beneficial and detrimental, this cross-wiring can cause.
