Special thanks to Sean Douglas and his team at the CodPast. The video blog was captured while I was in Telford, U.K. speaking at the British Dyslexia Association International Conference.
Book update – we’re in the process of editing the book with a release date scheduled for late September 2018.
Working through the edits, I thought of how dyslexics are visionaries, and how the book should be about the future, not where we are today. Entreprises and businesses create positions and hire for future needs.
The purpose of the book is to educate businesses and organizations about how advanced technologies will transform employment, how individuals who think differently will drive innovation, and to change the perception of dyslexia and neurodiversity in the workplace.
To move forward, we must understand how technology is profounding changing our world.
A summary of the discussion points in the book includes how advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and virtual reality will continue to transform employment and how these same technologies will create new job opportunities for neurodiverse individuals.
How? To remain competitive, companies will need individuals who naturally think differently to create, innovate, and envision the future.
As we move from solely using a print-technology based intelligence to visual technology-based intelligence, the need for visual intellects will increase. Dyslexics feast on visual information and images which will allow us to use our strengths to develop new services and employment positions.
Also, within this disruption is how technology is redefining literacy and language which will continue to transform how we complete our work. Imagine, when the majority of job tasks can be completed by visual and audio commands.
The book is divided into three sections. First, a discussion of advanced technologies. Second, how these technologies will transform work and literacy. The third part focuses on combining the natural strengths of dyslexic professionals with current and future work positions. The final section provides workplace strategies and lifestyle insights.
