Creativity makes people with dyslexia gifted entrepreneurs

People with dyslexia may be especially gifted in thinking creatively, says Sally Shaywitz, a Yale University professor of learning development who co-founded the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity. "I want people to wish they were dyslexic," she says. "We always write about how we're losing human capital -- dyslexics are not able to achieve their potential because they've had to go around the system." MSNBC/BusinessWeek
