Dr Fernette Eide Microsoft Dyslexia Workforce“Dyslexia is probably pretty common in tech companies.” – Dr. Fernette Eide, Co-Founder, Dyslexic Advantage

After interviewing dyslexic executives, software engineers, designers from the leading cutting-edge technology companies in the world, I am convinced that dyslexia and innovation go hand-in-hand and that corporations whose business it is creating what the future will be need to learn how to harness the talent and irreplaceable skill set.

Jony Ive is now Chief Designer at Apple, Astro Teller is Captain of Moonshots at GoogleX, John Chambers founded Cisco, Bill Hewlett Co-Founded Hewlett Packard,  the list goes on and on and on.

Where would technology and innovation be without dyslexics? It wouldn’t be anything like we know it today – that’s for sure.
