Author(s): Ronald D. Davis
The Gift of Dyslexia explores a fascinating hypothesis about dyslexia. The author, Ronald D. Davis, is himself dyslexic. He points out that many famous people were dyslexic, including Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison. Perhaps they succeeded in spite of dyslexia, but they may have succeeded because of the unique way that dyslexic individuals think.
The author solved the riddle of his own condition 13 years ago. Since then, he has run a program that has enabled thousands of people with dyslexia to read, write and study normally. He maintains that dyslexics suffer not so much from a learning disability, but from a teaching disability: few teachers know how to teach these children.
