“It’s time we all understand dyslexia properly as a different way of thinking, not a disadvantage”.  – Sir Richard Branson 

To shape the future of school and work, we need people who can visualize a sustainable future, and who can implement it through innovation, complex problem solving, creativity, emotional intelligence, and logical reasoning.  These are the skills required to succeed in the changing world of work.  Beyond sourcing these skills, we must also develop and harness them effectively in the early years in schools.  Much of this work requires that we rid ourselves of the negative perceptions associated with the differences in our cognitive ability and recognize and celebrate the natural variation of all human brains.  In other words, we must embrace our neurodiversity and value our difference because that very act will create an environment (school and work) where people can and want to do their best.
