Help the world to understand, value and support dyslexia.
A study of self-made millionaires in the U.K. found that 40 percent were dyslexic. Former Cisco CEO Chambers estimates that “25 percent of CEOs are dyslexic, but many don’t want to talk about it.”
Dyslexic minds see the world differently. They think creatively, laterally, often solving problems others can’t. They have the skills of the future. And they’ve transformed our past, inventing everything from the lightbulb to the iPhone.
But 80% are never spotted at school. So they never truly understand their full potential.
We can – and must – change this.
Our mission is to train every teacher to spot, support and empower every dyslexic child.
