Weekly Roundup: Dyslexia, Dyscalculia

Headlines

Just last week we featured a story on a dyslexic employee who won a disability discrimination against Starbucks. Dyslexic employment policies are back in the news this week but with a different twist: a marketing firm is advertising only for job-seekers who are dyslexic. The ad copy reads:

If Steve Jobs was an agency, what would it look like? …We require people with a unique mind, so only dyslexics (like Steve) should apply.

The marketing firm is called The Garage and is run by Chris Arnold, former creative director at Saatchi & Saatchi.

For the details click over to the Guardian and read through the story. What do you think about this type of advertising? A needed boost for dyslexics or reverse discrimination? Read more.
