Will's Blog - How I Process the World

THIS BLOG WAS WRITTEN SEVERAL YEARS AGO, AT A TIME WHEN WILL WAS LIVING IN A SHARED HOUSE. It will be put into an animated format which will eventually replace the written text.

In 2009 I was diagnosed with severe dyslexia, for me, this means that I process information differently.

I also have a severe weakness in working memory, which means I often find it difficult to process and retain information.

This often causes problems as I often forgot to do the simplest of tasks like turning off the cooker or lights and locking the front door.

I also find it difficult to retain and process written information, meaning that I often don’t fully understand the information I have just read, even though I can read the words perfectly.

Local businesses such as ‘Fabulous Welsh cakes’ and ‘Nata & co’ kindly donated delicious pastries. With all the generous donations and homemade cakes, we were ready to start fundraising. Alongside the cake and clothes fundraiser, we held a raffle.
