About This Course

NoticeAbility’s Entrepreneurs   Innovators curriculum teaches the fundamental tenets of entrepreneurship and innovative reasoning. This project-based learning course enables students to identify the cognitive skills that make dyslexics successful entrepreneurs (material reasoning, interconnected reasoning, narrative reasoning and dynamic reasoning). The result is a strength‐based pedagogy that is underscored by social emotional learning (SEL) and executive functioning (EF) research.

Dean - NoticeAbility

I was diagnosed with dyslexia in 3rd grade. School was never easy. I found myself working three times harder than everybody else. When I graduated from college, however, the world changed for me. I became an entrepreneur when I was 23 years old and I realized that dyslexia gave me a competitive advantage. I created NoticeAbility to give younger dyslexics the tools to discover and harness this power for themselves.

Sarah - Read Me Differently

Sarah Entine is an award-winning dyslexic documentary film director and producer. Her 56-minute film, Read Me Differently, explores how undiagnosed dyslexia and ADHD have impacted three generations in her family, starting with her own struggles. The film won the prestigious CINE Golden Eagle Award and was broadcast on public television (WGBH-TV) in the greater Boston area. Sarah has a Master’s degree in Social Work from Simmons College and has practiced mindfulness meditation since 1998. She holds a certificate in mindfulness facilitation from the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. Additionally, Sarah recently completed the teacher training offered by the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion at UCSD. Developing greater awareness and self-compassion have been extremely empowering for Sarah, and she welcomes every opportunity to share mindfulness and self-compassion practices with the dyslexic community.
