Dyslexic Tech Venture Capitalist David Hornik

Dyslexic Tech Venture Capitalist David Hornik | Dyslexia Demystified | Scoop.it

Another Silicon Valley Tech VC talks about his dyslexia:

 

“I was and remain dyslexic, so everything took me forever,” he says.

 

The only way I was going to retain it is if I heard it.” He recounts the time he hadn’t studied for an upcoming achievement test—his mother took him out of school for the day so that she could read him the prep book, page by page. “I killed that test because I had just heard it all,” he says.

 

His path to becoming a venture capitalist was unconventional. He studied Political Science and Computer Music at Stanford. His senior thesis was designing an electric violin. He went on to Cambridge University for an M.Phil in Criminology, then got a JD from Harvard Law School."

 

Long brain pathways associated with dyslexia may foster creativity, innovation, and forecasting, all strengths that seem ideally suited to venture capital in a fast moving area like technology. David was the first VC who started blogging.

 

Congrats David making the Phenomlist

Dyslexia at Work: Strengths and Implications for Education

Dyslexia at Work: Strengths and Implications for Education | Dyslexia Demystified | Scoop.it

Look at our survey of skills and strengths that were reported by adult dyslexics in the workplace. The top 4: 

 

- seeing from multiple perspectives

- ability to visualize

- problem solving, reasoning

- able to to see the 'big picture' and what happens next

 

These are a fantastic set of strengths that would cross all disciplines and fields - from science and engineering, to art and multimedia, humanities and entrepreneurship. 

 

But this gifts and talents are not even on the radar for most students. They don't easily fall into one of the 'multiple intelligences' or most gifted checklists. And these are strengths better suited to real life beyond the K-12 classroom.

 

Shouldn't we make sure that the educational process for dyslexic students is helping expand these strengths and abilities?
