A Letter to Dyslexic Children from 41st Vice President Nelson Rockefeller

A Letter to Dyslexic Children from 41st Vice President Nelson Rockefeller:
 
“For I was one of the “puzzle children” myself—a dyslexic, or “reverse reader”—and I still have a hard time reading today. But after coping with this problem for more than 60 years, I have a message of encouragement for children with learning disabilities—and their parents. Based on my own experience, my message to dyslexic children is this: Don’t accept anyone’s verdict that you are lazy, stupid, or retarded. You may very well be smarter than most other children your age. Just remember Woodrow Wilson, Albert Einstein, and Leonardo da Vinci also had tough problems with their reading. You can learn to cope with your problem and turn your so called disability into a positive advantage.” Read the complete letter here: https://go.learningally.org/puzzle-children/
