How much do you know about dyslexia? If I told you that many of history’s most dynamic achievers were dyslexics would you believe me?
Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell – each of these game-changers were dyslexics. In fact, 40 per cent of the world’s self-made millionaires have dyslexia. Still think of it as a disadvantage?
I was in London last month to open ‘the world’s first dyslexia sperm bank’ – an initiative championed by a cause close to my heart, Made By Dyslexia. On the back of the launch, I sat down with the campaign’s founder, Kate Griggs, and the founder of Finsbury, Roland Rudd – two fellow dyslexics – for a conversation about our experience with the advantage some people still call a ‘learning disability’.
