“We want to unlock each other’s potential”

While 10-20% of the population has dyslexia, 40% of self-made millionaires have dyslexia. Dyslexic people are hugely talented, and their cognitive flexibility, creativity, and visualisation skills are highly prized by businesses; yet figures show that the school drop-out rate of US dyslexics can be as high as 35%, twice the national average; and the unemployment rate among dyslexic adults is as high as 45%. If we alienate dyslexics at school and at work, we risk smothering their potential. If we smother their potential, we all fail.
