About this school

Dyslexia is a fundamental difference in the brain that makes it challenging to read and understand symbols like numbers and letters, but also carries advanced thinking skills in the areas of 3D thinking, inventiveness, arts and advanced science. While 15% of the total population is dyslexic, over 35% of successful entrepreneurs are dyslexic. We teach dyslexic children the way they are meant to learn.
