    Hi! I'm writing my personal statement, I'm applying for geography courses, and I don't know if it's okay to say about my dyslexia. I want to say about how it allows me to view problems from multiple perspectives so I can choose the best way to tackle it, and how it gives me strong lateral thinking skills. Is that alright? I've put it in the impairing section on the UCAS form too, thanks!

    As a side issue, have you read The Dyslexic Advantage by Brock Eide and Fernette Eide?
