Career success and learning disabilities are not mutually exclusive. In fact, there are some extremely success people who credit their very severe learning disabilities with helping them to become excellent learners and very creative thinkers. Don’t believe it? Take a look at this article in the February 2011 issue of Psychology Today
The print article gives the brief overview published in the link, and then four interviews with highly successful people in their fields. They are an artist, an economist (who can’t add!), an author, and a Nobel Prize winner in mathematics with severe dyslexia. There is a also a great sidebar article on why dyslexics think differently. Well worth a trip to the newstand.
