A lot of dyslexics excel in sports. Some professional athletes even attribute their success to dyslexia. This week we are going to talk about this fascinating subject with Sophia Gomma, a licensed Davis facilitator who helps dyslexic students in school and sports.
People with dyslexia are naturally very good at dynamic reasoning which can be very helpful in competitive games. However, there can be underlying roadblocks. Executing set plays and following the coaches instructions can sometimes be difficult for people with dyslexia. The coach may misinterpret this as the athlete being lazy.
We invited Sophia Gomma to our podcast this week to talk about dyslexia in sports and the factors that may affect athletes with dyslexia. Sophia also shares a lot of insights on coaching dyslexics and knowing what they need to maximise their capabilities in sports.

Podcast #103 Dyslexia, confidence and an alter ego who turned into a dynamic character of a novel. Ed Calkins
We have a very special and mind-bending episode this week. It’s all about a man with dyslexia who worked 34 years as a driver for a newspaper company and recently published a book with himself as the main character.
We talked about constantly reinventing yourself, a trait that most dyslexics have. We continuously find ways to change something in ourselves and what we do.
