I’m not good enough: Princess Beatrice on struggles with dyslexia

Princess Beatrice shed light on her “challenging” journey with dyslexia and how she coped with it growing up.

In a virtual message to a charity targeting suffers of dyslexia, she expressed her passion to bring change in the community of those struggling with the learning disorder.

“The reason I am so passionate about dyslexia is because of being a dyslexic person myself,” she said.

“I feel like I really understand that we have a responsibility to change the narrative around what we are delivering to young people in the classroom. I was very lucky, I got to go to a school that was very nurturing and very supportive.”

“But I would describe the actual day to day learning side of things as very challenging.”

She touched upon her childhood experiences and how she felt left out.

“I remember we had different coloured books to describe how far where reading levels had got to and I was always on the white books. My best friends were always on the yellow books or the green books. They were so far ahead,” she said.

“And I think at that stage, those moments of doubt just pop into your head. I’m not good enough, I’m not smart enough. Why am I not like the others?”

However, while she did struggle Princess Beatrice urged youngsters to not let them be influenced from these “very defining” moments.

“I’m very lucky I’ve been able to find a job that relies on my communication skills a lot more than it is me sitting behind a desk. A lot of my colleagues also have dyslexia because we work in a technology company that is always about looking at things differently,” she said.

“And I think that’s one of the strengths that we have as dyslexics is to look at things differently, be a problem solver, find new ways to do things, be experimental, entrepreneurial.”

Would totally recommend Develop us, made my son feel at ease. Having the assessment done in the comfort of his own surroundings I think was a big help. My son actually enjoy his day and didn’t seem stressed or worried about the assessments. Craig was so helpful and still is a month on sending me useful links etc. Thank you so much.

I recently had an assessment as an adult for dyspraxia or Developmental Co-ordination Disorder after self-referring. Craig was brilliant throughout. Great to deal with, understanding of my needs, and very supportive. He gave me a comprehensive assessment and communicated to me the whole process in an easy to understand manner. The final report was well written and I now have the evidence I need to get support in the workplace. I would highly recommend him and Develop Us

Craig is very patient and maintained really excellent communication throughout the whole process. During his assessment he was professional and patient, and pulled out all the stops to get his report to us ASAP. Highly recommended.

Craig has been a fantastic support with my son, Craig offers a wealth of knowledge, experience and great advice. Craig is enthusiastic and has a great deal of patience with the people he supports, I would have no hesitation in recommending his services and wish him all the best in the future.

Craig has been a Godsend to myself and my husband and my eldest daughter who was diagnosed. I am glad I asked for Craig’s professional opinion on the matter.  I am glad he did the assessment and we got the outcome of what we have thought it was for a while now. Thank you Craig.

I am a student who has been receiving support and tutoring from Craig since November 2018. Since receiving tutorial support from Craig, I have progressed onto high-level courses and an access course which has helped with my studies, knowledge and work. Craig has shown me support and helped make my course work manageable. I feel that I have been able to turn to Craig with any question or doubt and have received nothing but clarity and guidance. Without Craig’s help and support I do not think I would have the courage and ability to complete the courses and progress to higher levels. I have had support off Craig for a variety of courses and with work advise.

I feel that Craig has given me the confidence to take steps in my life that I would not have made on my own. Craig has not only been friendly and supporting, but has also been very professional, reliable and organised with the help he has given me.

Craig engages with his students in a way that is both professional and clear and thus gains the most of the time spent in his classes.
