LAST CHANCE TO SEE BEAUTIFUL MINDS - ENDING MAY 22, 2022

Dyslexia affects as much as 20% of the world’s population and often goes undiagnosed. Although dyslexia is labeled as a learning disability, it can also be seen as a different way of thinking because it changes the way millions of people read and process information.

Research has proven that people with dyslexia are often highly visual and able to quickly process and integrate visual and spatial information. History has proven that dyslexic thinkers have made world-changing accomplishments because of their ability to problem-solve in alternative ways with heightened creative skills.

In this exhibition, titled Beautiful Minds: Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage, explore the successes of those who think outside the box when faced with the challenges of dyslexia and learn about some of the tools and resources for diagnosis and pathways to success. A unique portion of the exhibit also reflects each community that it travels to, by featuring local students and artists.

The Health Museum would like to thank Neuhaus Education Center and The Dyslexia School of Houston for their supporting sponsorship. This exhibit was made possible with the partnership of Whiteboard Exhibits, Science Museum Oklahoma, Celebrate Dyslexia, and The Health Museum.
