Who is behind PlusLexia.com
My name is Jesper Sehested and I’m dyslexic. For many years, my motivation to go to school was nonexistent. When I graduated, I got 71 mistakes out of 92 on my spelling test.
By thinking about what I was good at and exploiting my strengths, I have overcome my challenges and gotten back my self-esteem.
Today I have a master’s degree and work full time with dyslexia. I do talks and write books for children, parents, and teachers about life as a dyslexic.
Together with my team, I try to make young dyslexics realize that their strengths are more important than their dyslexia.
Diversity is a plus!
We believe that the diversity in human skills is a plus for our lives in many aspects. Together we can create better results in school, sports, relations, etc.
Therefore, we embrace this diversity by empowering young dyslexics to see the plus in their skills and to believe in themselves.
