For the Workplace

For Schools

Do you know what Charles Schwab, Richard Branson, and William Hewlett have in common?


Of course they are all incredibly successful business people but did you know that they are also all dyslexic. Each one of them was able to harness the unique visual-spatial thinking style of dyslexia for their success and develop tools to overcome the barriers that they faced along the way.


Many did not even realize until very late in life that they were dyslexic.
