Harnessing the power of dyslexic thinking

Exploring how dyslexia influences the way we think, create and relate to one another

Dyslexia affects as many as 1 in 5 people, yet its benefits remain shrouded in mystery. With Dyslexic Design Thinking, Gil Gershoni shares how dyslexia offers a heightened advantage, what he calls his “hyper-ability.” Through the lens of his experiences as a creative director and entrepreneur, Gil shows how he transformed a perceived weakness into a strength and explores the steps needed to build awareness and effect change.
