October is dyslexia awareness month

Did you know that about 15% of the population suffers from dyslexia? Do you know what percentage of US entrepreneurs have dyslexia? 35%! The simple tasks we all learn at an early age of reading and writing do not come naturally to people with dyslexia. They end up trying to do things differently and find creative solutions to problems. These are some of the well known innovators and business leaders who have dyslexia:
• Sir Richard Branson
• Ted Turner
• Walt Disney
• Erin Brockovich
• Albert Einstein
• Thomas Edison
• Tommy Hilfiger
• Winston Churchill
• Henry Ford
• Agatha Christie
During the month of October there are conferences all around the US promoting, awareness, research, and early identification of dyslexia. Ginger Software will be participating in the following conferences and would love to meet with you there:

October 14-15, 2010, Drury Lane Conference Center, Oakbrook Terrace, IL

October 22, 2010, Hilton’s Somerset Double Tree Hotel, Somerset, NJ

October 27-30, 2010, The Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, AZ


October 30, 2010, Sheraton Framingham Hotel and Conference Center, Framingham, MA
