Steve McCue stopped going to school at age 14 because he did not think he had the academic ability. He worked different jobs and performed in festivals as a musician but at age 35 he went back to school and got identified with dyslexia. He was given a computer to work with and that helped him a lot. However, assistive technologies were pretty basic at that time and some even caused roadblocks for him.
