Once again it is voting season for SXSWedu Panel Picker proposals.
I need your vote for my proposed session idea “How Dyslexics Will Rule the Future.” Every up vote is important.
Here is information from my submission:
Share information with the dyslexia, special needs, and higher education community about the growing demand for different thinkers and neurodiverse individuals.
To maintain a competitive edge, tech companies and large consulting firms are hiring dyslexics and autistic employees. Often these employees provide a different viewpoint and work to develop new products and systems.
It is important for schools and educators to understand how digital revolution is transforming employment.
- Provide a summary of how the digital revolution is transforming employment and how neurodiverse employees can be a competitive edge.
- Offer examples of which traits and skills companies are seeking that align with dyslexics and neurodiverse individuals.
- Share five key strategies for helping high school and college age students utilize their strengths and talents for their future career pursuits.
