Why are so many accomplished entrepreneurs, like Richard Branson, and scientists, like Albert Einstein, and mathematicians, like Norbert Wiener, and artists, like Pablo Picasso dyslexic? People with dyslexia see the world differently. Each of these amazing individuals struggled as young learners, but their determination, grit, and ability to perceive new ways of doing things, brought them extraordinary fame and gave our humanity unprecedented gifts.
In this blog, we’re celebrating National Dyslexia Awareness Month because we know that with the right champion, resources and motivation, all students can learn and reach their dreams. We hope your students will be inspired by this selection of audiobooks to appreciate and celebrate diversity in thought, mind, and ability.
