Description

The video starts with a great experiment that helps you try to interpret the world as someone with dyslexia does.  It then goes into some of the neuroscience, such as Broca’s area and our left vs. right hemispheres, that explains this learning disability.  The video then discusses neurodiversity and famous individuals who were/are dyslexic.  It ends with some interventions that can help dyslexic individuals read better.
