Not really a surprise or even a surprising figure to have 100 of Britains 5000 spies on the spectrum, meaning dyslexic, dyspraxic, Asperger, Autistic. Who else is great at breaking codes? finding solutions outside the box? coming up with a different way of viewing an old situation?

This story has just recently been revived, as a new film is about to be released starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a gifted dyslexic code-breaker who played a pivotal role cracking German military code during the Second World War.

I am working with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses and have opened a centre to expand Sydney Dyslexia to another location right on the beach at the Entrance North. I have written two books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time' and 'Nurturing the Secret Garden') as I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field.
