Dyslexia affects as much as 20% of the world’s population and often goes undiagnosed. Although dyslexia is labeled as a learning disability, it can also be seen as a different way of thinking because it changes the way millions of people read and process information.
Research has proven that people with dyslexia are often highly visual and able to quickly process and integrate visual and spatial information. History has proven that dyslexic thinkers have made world-changing accomplishments because of their ability to problem-solve in alternative ways with heightened creative skills.
In this exhibition, titled Beautiful Minds: Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage, explore the successes of those who think outside the box when faced with the challenges of dyslexia and learn about some of the tools and resources for diagnosis and pathways to success. A unique portion of the exhibit also reflects each community that it travels to, by featuring local students and artists.
The Health Museum would like to thank Neuhaus Education Center and The Dyslexia School of Houston for their supporting sponsorship. This exhibit was made possible with the partnership of Whiteboard Exhibits, Science Museum Oklahoma, Celebrate Dyslexia, and The Health Museum.
Are you currently enrolled in school at any level or homeschooled in the Greater Houston Area? Do you have dyslexia?
If so, you are invited to join The Health Museum's Artist Invitational! We invite you to tell your story about overcoming and living with dyslexia through your art! Your art would be displayed digitally in The Health Museum between now and May 2022 (during the run of Beautiful Minds: Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage).
Please fill out the form and upload the very best possible image of your art. The submission deadline is October 15th by 11:59pm.
