A question to ask dyslexics

If you meet a dyslexic and want to find out what dyslexia is, how about asking them this question: "What are you really, really good at?"

It might be hard to resist the urge to ask the more obvious (opposite) question, but I think it is probably more helpful.

You may find that he/she has never been asked that question before. Certainly not in the context of a conversation about dyslexia.
