In a February 4, 2012, New York Times Opinion piece, Annie Murphy Paul wrote about dyslexia. The following weekend, the New York Times published responses to that piece. We especially would like to draw your attention to one letter to the editor.

“It makes you wonder how many scientists, lawyers, doctors, engineers and writers we have lost because they failed early on in school and no one knew how to tap into their talents and teach them how to read.”
