Discover your Edison at Aspire's Summer Camp - Filling Fast!

Author: Heidi Kroner, Executive Director, Aspire Academy
Posted: May 23, 2018




Three times this summer, Aspire is offering a one of a kind dyslexia camp, created by a dyslexia entrepreneur and designed to help kids with dyslexia recognize their strengths.  Dean Braggonier, (Carly Simon's son-in-law), has created the Entrepreneur and Innovator's Camp, and Aspire Academy is the only provider in Iowa.

Entrepreneur and Innovators Camp

Learn that dyslexia is really no disability...it has its own set of strengths that others don’t have. Get exposure to professions that reveal the inborn strengths of the dyslexic mind through a week-long, project-based learning experience. Participants use innovation, creativity, problem-solving and empathy to build a business and marketing plan in a small-group setting.

 

This camp's curriculum is developed by Notice-ability, a company that focuses on developing courses that bring out dyslexic strengths. 

 

Solutions developed at past camps include: Microchipping easy-to-lose items to find them anywhere, Rent-a-dog businesses for those who can’t own a pet full-time,  and Perma-paper - paper that can’t be destroyed by water, wrinkled or ripped.

 

35% of entrepreneurs are dyslexic, 40% of self-made millionaires are dyslexic, and in Boston, dyslexia is known as the “MIT disease” because of the vast numbers that attend the nation’s top engineering university.

Customer Comments

"Our son felt bad about reading and writing for years before tutoring. Now, he understands that he can learn and be successful. He also understands that there is a reason it is so hard for him to learn the way others do. He looks forward to tutoring, and he has gained a tremendous amount of confidence as a student and a reader."
