​James Nuttall comes from a long line of educators, including a grandfather who taught in a one-room school house. Wishing to follow in his footsteps and become an educator himself, Nuttall found that following his dream was going to be a difficult road. He was born legally blind and he was diagnosed with dyslexia.

Although ambitious, he was only reading 27 words a minute. Nuttall decided to fight rather than surrender. He worked hard in school and eventually earned his PhD and worked with the Special Education Unit of the Michigan Department of Education for 30 years.

​Now that he is retired, Nuttall continues to educate, but this time he’s educating people about dyslexia. Nuttall is constantly researching new technologies to find how they can be used as an advantage to those with dyslexia.
