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- it changes the way millions of people read and process information.  

In “Beautiful Minds – Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage”, explore the successes of those who think and thought 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. 

Learn how the right and left sides of the brain are engaged and what is more prominent with you. Get a hands-on approach to mirror writing and blind contour drawing on a life-size acrylic canvas. Listen to stories told by children about their experiences growing up with dyslexia before and after intervention. Walk among the life-size illustrations of some of the most influential visionaries who have changed the course of history. Have fun playing a variety of spatial and word games including an oversized tile spelling game, color block puzzles, and digital interactive educational games for all ages. In the exhibit you will also learn about what dyslexia really is and the truth behind some of the negative myths that are perpetuated in society.

Running in conjunction with Beautiful Minds – Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage will be The 2020 Artist-In-Residence, Sarah Sudhoff's installation, The Reading Brain, which will allow families to be immersed in the inner-workings of the reading brain through a multi-sensory, data driven interactive installation.
