Posted by TechCrunch on Saturday, March 13, 2021 04:15:01It’s a phrase that’s been used by people who want to use their disabilities to learn new words.
But it’s a concept that’s not universal, and it has a long history.
When the phrase first began to be used, it was used to describe someone with dyslexia, a form of reading disability that is often confused with other kinds of reading disabilities, such as dyspraxia.
Dyslexia is a learning disability, and dysplexia can cause difficulties with reading.
People with dyspaxia tend to have difficulty reading aloud, and often need help with spelling.
But dyslexic people have no difficulty understanding language at all, so it was not clear if it was a new way of describing someone with a reading disability, or just an alternative to describing someone who can’t do so.
When someone with Dyslexie read the tweet above, the tweet went viral, with people from all walks of life sharing their experience of dyslexiacism.
They shared how they struggled to understand the tweet and how it made them feel.
“This was a moment of clarity and relief,” said one tweeter.
“The tweet helped me see that people with dyspieia can read and understand things without the help of a book or computer,” said another.
This is not the first time that the phrase has been used to help someone with disabilities understand something.
In the 1920s, the Oxford English Dictionary began using the term dyslexias to describe people who did not have a strong grasp of words.
In 2010, a similar tweet was created to explain why it was difficult for people with a dyslexiac background to read aloud: Dyslexias are not a mental disability.
They are a social disability, not a disability.
The term was also used by the BBC in its original broadcast of “The Voice” in 2015.
