Think dyslexia is a roadblock? Think again. Ask Steven Spielberg. Or Richard Branson. Or Anderson Cooper.

Recent research has shown that people with dyslexia likely have other talents that can turn them into the world’s leading thinkers and doers.

"I was dyslexic. I had no understanding of school work whatsoever. I certainly would have failed IQ tests ... what definitely was true was that I seemed to think in a different way than my classmates."
