Steven Spielberg


Legendary film director Steven Spielberg was diagnosed with dyslexia in his 60s. School administrators thought he was lazy. He was bullied by classmates, and his troubles in school played a part in his career. Making movies gave him a place to channel his energies. Feeling like an outsider helped him co-write the hit movie, The Goonies, about a group of quirky friends who didn’t quite fit in. Finding out as an adult that he has dyslexia was like “the last puzzle piece to a great mystery that I’ve kept to myself.”
