My passion is teaching those blessed with Dyslexia.
Did you know that 35% of entrepreneurs are dyslexic? The very nature of viewing a "b" as a backward "d" or an inverted "p" hints at heightened spatial awareness. Many dyslexic individuals think "outside of the box" and create new business opportunities. Famous dyslexics like Willard Wigan, space physicist Dr. Dave McComas and Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad did just that. The diagnosis of dyslexia can be a blessing in disguise!
Principal investigator, NASA IBEX Space Mission Dave McComas says, "You need people with all different kinds of skills...If you've got it, go with it. Let dyslexia set you free."
