[Source: New York Daily News]
Apple’s Steve Jobs had it. So did Nelson Rockefeller, and so do Bill Gates, Anderson Cooper, Ameer Baraka, Steven Spielberg and many more leaders, scholars, authors, actors, scientists, lawyers and financiers.
Each of these famous, highly successful people has dyslexia, a condition in the brain that makes it difficult for some children and adults to read fluently.
But thousands more children with dyslexia — and one in five children have it — will go undiagnosed. Even for those with diagnoses, it will go unremarked upon, in large part because school officials have been afraid to use the word “dyslexia.”
