Insights and ideas directly from New Profit

August 18, 2015

Yesterday marked the last day of an incredible journey. Dean Bragonier, a valued member of the New Profit community and founder of NoticeAbility, spent this summer swimming 50 miles around Martha's Vineyard to raise awareness for Dyslexia. Bragonier, a dyslexic himself, is dedicated to raising awareness of dyslexia and those who have it. His latest effort in this area takes the form of the new organization NoticeAbility, a nonprofit that creates dyslexic-friendly learning tools for middle school-aged children.

Recently Bragonier sat down with his 'dyslexic mentor' Vanessa Kirsch, Founder and CEO of New Profit, and her daughter to talk about their dyslexic superpowers. Check out their full conversation below:
