dean bragonier dyslexia noticeability tedx talk Sep 07, 2022

This week we had the opportunity of meeting Dean Bragonier as our podcast guest. He is the founder of, a non-profit organisation that focuses on introducing middle school-aged children to the cognitive advantages associated with dyslexia. Dean has presented quite a few talks about dyslexia, including a TEDx talk on the true gifts of the dyslexic mind.

In this episode, Dean talks about his dyslexia story and his struggle for acceptance from himself and from society. Dean considers himself privileged, being from a family that had enough resources to get him a diagnosis and give him proper accommodations, yet he still felt that he was alone and not accepted by his peer group. That is why he created Noticeability, to help children with dyslexia understand how their mind works and rebuild their self-worth.
