Teacher Shares Student's Dyslexia Poem That Can Be Read Forwards And Backwards


Dyslexia is a common learning difficulty that can cause problems with reading, writing and spelling, that impacts around 1 in every 10 people. While intelligence isn't affected, those with the condition can find it extremely difficult to read and write throughout their lives. 

Jane Broadis, a year 6 teacher at Christ Church Chorleywood C of E School in Watford, United Kingdom, teaches a 10-year-old student with dyslexia. After teaching her class about poems that can be read both forwards and backwards, the student with dyslexia decided to write their own. 

Broadis shared the poem on Twitter, where it's since received over 47,000 retweets and 150,000 likes.
