'Screw it' Richard Branson admits dyslexia issues 'I couldn't look at a balance sheet'


Dyslexia details a learning disorder characterised by a difficulty with reading due to problems with identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words. Also dubbed as a learning disability, dyslexia targets areas of the brain that process language.

The business magnate behind the Virgin Group said: “At the age of 15, I decided to leave school.

“Once I started putting my dyslexic thinking brain to things that I was interested in, I think I started to excel at them.

“I was quite creative, I was great at getting a group of people around me and motivating them well.”

He has previously shared that one of the strengths dyslexics possess is their vivid imagination.
