"this was a very interesting:)
"Hello... one of the greatest minds this world has ever known was a severe
dyslexic - ALBERT EINSTEIN! His dyslexia was so bad that he had to paint
his front door bright red so that he could find his house (no joke!). The
guy could get lost in a paper bag - but he was by far one of the most
amazing scientists and mathematicians the 20th century has ever known.

"My son has a great time reading through this list. He realizes he is not
the only one, and said "I could do any of these things!". Thank you so
much for compiling this list.
Women with ADHD : Salma Hayek (on this list aswell), Liv Tyler, Karina
Smirnoff, Scout Taylor-Compton, Hilary Duff, Madeline Zima, Emma Watson."
"I have a learning disability and it was cool to see that many people who

"As an ADHD adult Special Ed teacher I LOVE feeling like I belong to a

"I'm a retired teacher, but I taught children with dyslexia for several
years. I used a program called 'Sounds in Syllables' and the children
made grreat progress in reading, writing and spelling.
They can learn to read, but it takes time and patience."
"Isnt is sad that so many are disquallified as intelligent because of
societies need to punnish illiteracy.All Stars and then some on this List
"I really do love this, I now feel better about myself, and its good to
know that even famous people have learing problems too.
"Henry Winkler (the Fonz or Arthur Fonzarelli) also writes books for
children. His 'Hank Zipzer' series is for grades 3 - 5 and deals with a
young boy with learning disabilities. Good series, looks like quite a
few. They're funny and definitely on the level for that age group.
Here's the character's website if anyone's interested:
Does state that Henry too dealt with learning issues.
"I love this this list!
But I don't think it is necessary to label children as LD and/or AD/HD.
They way I see it, every child has genius, but schools are only concerned
with academic success. If a child does not measure up academically, then
they are put to shame and given a label. The good news is that academic
success and success in the real world are two different things, and anyone
is capable of the latter, regardless of how they did in school.
Every person on this list is fortunate that they had enough confidence in
themselves, despite their failures in school. Many students in similar
situations would simply believe what they are told - that they will fail
because of their academic lack, and thus not even try.
So many more children would be better off if they were appreciated for the
genius that they have, rather than put to shame for the genius they don't.
"This is a fabulous list, many thanks for compiling it. "
