Dyslexic Heroes Poster

Below is a poster we created with pictures of just some of the many famous dyslexics. For example, did you know that billionaire Richard Branson is dyslexic? So were inventors Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, Steve Jobs, and Alexander Graham Bell. Did you know that Henry Fonda, Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney and Whoopie Goldberg are all dyslexics? To download the high resolution PDF of the poster below, click on this link. It is best printed in color at 11″ by 17.” (It costs us $1.40/print at Kinko’s in North Carolina.) FamousDyslexicsPoster  Please share with any kid, parent or teacher who might need it.
