This 10-Year-Old Student Wrote A Poem About Dyslexia That Can Be Read Forwards And Backwards And ‘Stunned’ Her Teacher

Published 5 years ago

Jane Broadis, a year 6 teacher at Christ Church Chorleywood C of E School in Watford, United Kingdom, has recently surprised internet users everywhere by sharing a unique poem written by one of her pupils. The poem is titled “Dyslexia” and the unique part of it is that it can be read both forwards and backwards.

Dyslexia is a disorder that affects the ability to read despite normal intelligence. In another tweet, Broadis expressed concern that school children affected by this disorder never hear that they are often able to think in ways others cannot.

There’s a common misconception that only people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can be dyslectic. The truth is that it can be caused by both environmental factors and passed on genetically.

Some people were quick to call this poem a palindrome but that is not entirely correct – a palindrome is something that can be read from both ends and still spell the same word, like ‘racecar’ or ‘madam’, or even whole phrases like “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!”. And let’s not forget ‘taco cat’.

Many others were impressed by the poem too

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
