Dyslexia Series-Disabled Legend John Horner

John “Jack” R. Horner was born on 15 June, 1946. John is an American paleontologist who discovered and named the Maiasaura, providing the first clear evidence that some dinosaurs cared for their young. John is one of the most well known paleontologists in the United States. In addition to his many paleontological discoveries, John served as the technical advisor for all of the Jurassic Park films. John discovered the first dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, the first evidence of dinosaur colonial nesting, the first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs, and the first dinosaur embryos. John Horner is the Montana State University Regents’ Professor of Paleontology, but his dyslexia precluded a college degree, which was not diagnosed until he was an adult and had not graduated from college. While working at Princeton he found a diagnostic center, and his dyslexia was formally diagnosed. “I wasn’t diagnosed until well after I had reached adulthood, had struggled through school being considered lazy, dumb, and perhaps even retarded, and had flunked out of college seven times.”
