Founder Quinn Bradlee interviews Dean Bragonier, Founder and “Executive Dyslexic” of NoticeAbility on the power of unlocking the dyslexic mind, his swim around Martha's Vineyard to raise awareness for the organization, and his own personal journey with dyslexia. The interview took place on 11/5/15 in New York City at the offices of Understood.org.
Dean Bragonier is the Founder and Executive Dyslexic of NoticeAbility. Shaped by the challenges associated with his dyslexia, Dean became a diligent and successful college student after struggling through the traditional secondary education system. It wasn’t until he enrolled at Bates College that he developed a true love of learning, fostered in large part by the institution’s unique approach to education and its support of students with learning differences. As a social entrepreneur, Dean has founded his own nonprofit organizations and served as board member and advisor to a number of others. NoticeAbility is the culmination of Dean’s passion for education and his conviction that the advantages of dyslexia far outweigh its associated challenges.
