Bella Thorne Explains How She Deals With Having Dyslexia

Pin It
Bella Thorne hasn't let her dyslexia hold her back! The Shake It Up starlet opened up about her how having the learning disorder has affected her personally and professionally during an AOL Build last week. "It's not something that you can just like, get over," Bella shared, explaining that she made the main character in her Autumn Falls book series have the disorder too. "I wanted Autumn to have it in the book because it's so a part of me and so a part of so many people...I think with dyslexia too, a lot of quirks come in, and that's what makes you who you are."

The actress recalled how she made a mistake when cheering for her boyfriend in high school due to being dyslexic. "I wrote his number on a sign because he played football and I didn't even realize I had written it upside down and it was the wrong number. I had number 9 instead of number 6," she said.

Luckily, her career as an actress and constantly reading scripts has helped her to deal with her learning difficulty. "Every single day, all I do is read scripts, do cold reads, table kind of have to do it on the fly and that's helped me a lot," Bella, who was promoting her #FindYourPark campaign, says.

Clearly, she's been incredibly successful despite her dyslexia which is super inspiring. You go, girl!
