We are Exceptional Individuals. The first employment partnership for dyslexic people.
We believe our economy is missing out on a valuable asset.
Current employment practices exclude many dyslexic people despite their proven ability.

He also believes that educating companies about the benefits of employing dyslexic people (which there are many) is key to breaking down barriers for the dyslexic community.Employer or candidate liaison: Both Dyslexic: Yes
