How he discovered his strengths and used them to spectacular effect

Seeing successful people out in the world who work with and around their dyslexia is important for little ones with dyslexia to see. The idea that you can and will be anything you want to be when you grow up is important!

YouTube has so many great interviews but the Brian Grazer one shows basically his whole life story…


For a success story that’s impossible to resist, check out Dr. Harold Koplewicz’s delightful interview with Academy Award-winning film and television producer Brian Grazer on his early struggles with dyslexia, and how despite a dismal start in school—a string of Ds and Fs—his grandmother persuaded him that he was special. “And as much as all of the empirical evidence was showing that I wasn’t, I guess she was able to overpower me, and I did believe that I was special, and I operated on that definition.” Given that Grazer has made many of our favorite films and TV shows, it’s worth reading how he discovered his strengths and used them to spectacular effect.

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
