Dyslexie is designed to make reading easier for dyslexics. Here is the story of how it came to be.
I, like many dyslexics, (sadly) grew up thinking I was stupid. I don’t want anyone else thinking they are dumb, less valued than those around them, or not good enough because their brain isn’t “normal.” That’s why I created the Dyslexia Is Our Superpower Podcast. Episode by episode a community of badass dyslexics has formed to show the world that dyslexia truly is a superpower. So whether you are a family member or educator of an awesome dyslexic or whether you have dyslexic superpowers yourself I welcome you to the tribe.
The podcast has two components:
One component is conversations with dyslexics from all walks of life as we focus on the positive aspects of dyslexia and prove one chat at a time that there are many ways to succeed as a person with dyslexia. The other component is what we call Kweshtens & Kapes. This is Q&A dyslexia style! Have a question for Gibby? Anything dyslexia goes! Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
“Gibby, your podcast is amazing! Thank you so much for hopeful stories of superpower success, superpower strategies and a strong dose of superpower strength! My son’s superpowers are newly diagnosed and your podcast is helping us re-frame the beginning (and ending) of this story! Thank you!”
“I’ve never heard so many people be interviewed and had so much in common with them all in one place. I am so grateful for this podcast, it’s really helped me to learn more about myself. This podcast has really helped me with self confidence and is an asset to the dyslexic community.”
By finding something he was really good at Jeff was able to let his strengths lead the way into an amazing career in the field of aviation engineering without having the formal education his colleagues had.
Since he was placed in special education classes when he graduated high school Jarryn was missing some academic requirements so couldn’t choose one of the football scholarships he was being offered. As a result, with the help of his friend John and his mentor who goes by Underworld they made the impossible possible and Jarryn went to play for Kansas State. This is his story about how he did that.
Jarryn’s book is called 4th And A Long Shot: Going To College My Way.
