A new Yale study offers encouraging news. In the study, researchers at the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity found that Yale College graduates identified as dyslexic did just as well on a variety of academic, social, and career measures as peers with typical reading skills both during their undergraduate years and after graduation.
Scott Cumming declared his avowed mission these days to be, “I never, ever want anyone believing they were born stupid.” As an adult dyslexic, Cumming’s tool in achieving that goal is dyslexictogether.org, which he is building from his own, painful experiences of severe struggles with reading and writing.
Kids who have dyslexia may have some difficulty reading, but their social and emotional intelligence are amazing. This is what a new study has found, stating that dyslexic kids have interpersonal strengths.
