NoticeAbility instructors will guide students to explore the fundamental principles of entrepreneurship through the development of a product idea and business. Problem-solving skills, active listening, conflict resolution, negotiation techniques, empathy, and creativity will be the focus.  Students will get exposure to professions that utilize and focus on the innate strengths of those with dyslexia.
