Robert Toth repeated forth grade three times. As a child he often felt awkward. He didn’t learn to read until he was twelve, and he was diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADHD. Only when he realized that he had an artistic talent, he found that he didn’t have an attention problem at all. Quite the opposite, when sculpting or painting, he developed a hyperfocus. He gives a lot of credit to Ron Davis to help him understand how he learns and the gifts inherent in him.
I have watched Josh Kaufman along with 22 million viewers on Youtube about “The first 20 hours and how to learn anything”. Naturally, I had to put it to a test: Can an adult with dyslexia, with average or poor reading skills learn to read in twenty hours? And what steps would allow this shortcut to happen?
