The first CEO I will be talking about is Charles Schwab. He failed out of remedial English and came extremely close of flunking his first year in college. He quickly learned to overcome his reading difficultly at an early age by reading with pictures. Schwab learned the plots and characters of Moby-Dick, A Tale of Two Cities, and other great books by reading Classic comics, which told the stories in pictures, which made it easier for him to follow the plot and remember it too. Research shows that while dyslexic people may have difficulty in one aspect of learning, they excel in another subject.

At first the class is moving way too quickly for her to grasp any knowledge and understand anything. This causes her frustration since she can’t keep up with the pace of the class and is constantly being left behind having to catch up to the teacher. Then when the teacher calls on her she doesn't know where they are causing even more frustration. Then she gets angry when she gets a question wrong and the teacher embarrasses her in front of the others. But, when she gets an answer right, he just moves on like she did nothing right.

Another participant pretty much gave up on trying after 30 minutes. She would say she doesn't know or they took my answer. She experienced a sense of aw on how kids are living with this difficulty for their whole life. After a while her performance and attitude started to decline. She would start giving sighs after every answer and you can tell she was
