Get inspired by Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz!
Through their 35 years of research as co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, the Shaywitzes debunked the myth that people afflicted with dyslexia were less intelligent.
Working together, this husband-and-wife team discovered dyslexia’s neurological basis, pioneered effective therapies, and changed public attitudes about the most common learning disorder in the United States.
The Shaywitzes were honored at LSC’s 8th Annual Genius Gala on May 13, 2019. Take a look at this video from the Gala, reflecting on their incredible career:
