About This Episode
Albert Einstein, Whoopi Goldberg, Keira Knightly, Pablo Picasso, and Sir Richard Branson may be notable in their own right, but they also share the condition of dyslexia.
For years it’s been portrayed as an obstacle but for Michael’s guest, Kate Griggs, it presents the opportunity of a superpower for life.
Kate is a campaigner and the founder of Made by Dyslexia, a leading voice in global advocacy for what she calls the superpower of dyslexia, now in its fifth year. That means disrupting the world’s thinking and campaigning for the unique and important skills of people with dyslexia.
It’s a challenge that Kate has made a lifelong mission and is driven by her own experiences of growing up and the difference identifying a dyslexian made to her own education. With a TED talk that has garnered almost 400,000 views, and Kate’s latest book, This is Dyslexia, she aims to redefine and reshape how it’s shaped our past and how harnessing its powers is vital to our future.
