When it comes to dyslexics, they can be really curious and become amazing explorers. I often see it in the adult form of their careers. One of the reasons they are so good at their jobs, especially in today’s day and age of constant digital transformation, is they don’t get stuck in their ways about how something should be done.
Dyslexics are often the early adaptors. They are the ones that are going to bring new ideas to the company.

There are a host of job opportunities for different thinkers with the strength of exploring.
