This week we had the opportunity of meeting Dean Bragonier as our podcast guest. He is the founder of Noticeability.org, a non-profit organisation that focuses on introducing middle school-aged children to the cognitive advantages associated with dyslexia. Dean has presented quite a few talks about dyslexia, including a TEDx talk on the true gifts of dyslexic mind.
In this episode, Dean talks about his dyslexia story and his struggle for acceptance from himself and from society. Dean considers himself privileged, being from a family that had enough resources to get him a diagnosis and give him proper accommodations, yet he still felt that he was alone and not accepted from his peer group. That is why he created Noticeability, to help children with dyslexia understand how their mind works and rebuild their self worth.

Podcast #103 Dyslexia, confidence and an alter ego who turned into a dynamic character of a novel. Ed Calkins
We have a very special and mind-bending episode this week. It’s all about a man with dyslexia who worked 34 years as a driver for a newspaper company and recently published a book with himself as the main character.
We talked about constantly reinventing yourself, a trait that most dyslexics have. We continuously find ways to change something in ourselves and what we do.
