Dyslexia Series-Disabled Legend Thomas Edison

Thomas Alva Edison was born on 11 February, 1847 and died on 18 October, 1931.  Thomas was an American inventor of Dutch origin and businessman who developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph and a long lasting light bulb. In school, the young Edison’s mind often wandered. Thomas was noted to be terrible at mathematics, unable to focus, and had difficulty with words and speech. This ended Edison’s three months of official schooling. The cause of Edison’s deafness has been attributed to a bout of scarlet fever during childhood and recurring untreated middle ear infections. Thomas Edison was dyslexic, a problem child, and a mischief-maker. Thomas talked when he was supposed to be listening and did not listen when the teacher talked. Thomas had no patience. Thomas was not well-coordinated and did poorly in sports. Thomas applied himself with a passion to whatever caught his attention, but his attention was easily diverted.
