Al fought dyslexia all his life and recently discovered a more positive view which described people with dyslexia as visual, multidimensional thinkers who are intuitive, highly creative, and excel at hands-on learning. Many people with dyslexia shine in the arts, creativity, design, computing, and lateral thinking - a perfect description of Al.
