Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Beethoven with Learning Disability
If anyone says that you are not smart as other because you have learning disability, don’t worry. Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, and Beetoven were the ones of famous people with learning disability. For someone disagnosed with a learning disability, it can seem scary at first. But a learning disability doesn’t have anything to do with a person’s intelligence, after all such as sucessful people as Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, Tom Cruise, George Washington, John F. Kennedy, Henry Ford, Geroge Burn, Bill Cosby, Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, Babe Ruth, etc.
Sometimes talent and genius are more than just inherited or evident from birth. Overcoming a learning disability has shaped the careers and accomplishments of some of the most famous people in the world. They are just as intelligent, talented, and sensitive as everyone else they simply have trouble processing certain types of information. There’s no cure for a learning disability. And you don’t outgrow it. Most people with learning disabilities learn to adapt to their learning differences, and they learn strategies that help them accomplish their goals and dreams.
Here’s what I found about Thomas Edison, Beethoven and AGB’s background….
Thomas Edison was kicked out of school when he was 12 because teachers said that he was too dumb. He was bad at mathematics, had trouble with words and speaking. Later he overcame his dyslexia and went on to patent more than 1000 inventions including the electric light bulb. He became deaf at the age of 14.
Ludwig Van Beethoven became deaf later in his young life when he composed his 9th symphony. He was very angry and struggling until he finished it.
Alexander Graham Bell suffered from dyslexia. He worked with deaf children. His mother and wife were deaf.
