"Celebrities Who Have Dyslexia" 8 Fascinating Things About the Dyslexic Brain

Updated: Dec 27, 2018






In the last video I talked about 2 important skills that are needed to fully comprehend the written word...either spoken or through the written text.


I mentioned that we would take a brief look at the fascinating brains of those with dyslexia which allows for them to have unique abilities.


Hi I’m Jean Harville, founder of Private Dyslexia Tutor.


I’m so glad you are here.


Because of the way the dyslexic brain works, some of these people have been classified as geniuses in their field of work.


I will be pulling the following information from the book “The Gift of Dyslexia” written by Ronald D. Davis.


The following are famous people who have/had Dyslexia:


*Hans Christian Andersen - a famous children’s literature writer


*Alexander Graham Bell - who invented the telegraph which later evolved into the telephone


*Cher - a master singing artist


*Leonardo da Vinci - famous painter


*Walt Disney - visionary for the Disney them parks and future communites, art


*Henry Ford - the inventor of the automobile


*Albert Einstein - gave us the laws of physics


*Nelson Rockefeller, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, W.B. Yeats, etc


Now having dyslexia won’t make every dyslexic a genius, but it is good for the self-esteem of all dyslexics to know their minds work in exactly the same way as the minds of great geniuses.


It is also important for them to know that having a problem with reading, writing, spelling or math doesn’t mean they are dumb or stupid.


The same mental function that produces a genius can also produce those problems.
