Leicester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 29, 2009 -- Former Welsh rugby captain, Scott Quinnell, has overcome his dyslexia and become a Twitter guru thanks to a breakthrough treatment for learning difficulties called the Dore Programme.
Scott, whose dyslexia was so severe he could barely read or sign an autograph, says the Programme completely opened up his life and he has recently become a Twitter-holic, something he could never have dreamed of five years ago.
Scott says, "A couple of years ago I struggled to use a keyboard and writing emails was a nightmare! Now I'm using the computer everyday and have joined Twitter, which is great fun although my kids think it's a bit embarrassing!"
Although Scott had suffered from dyslexia his whole life it was only after speaking to Kenny Logan, a former Scotland rugby player and fellow TV pundit, in 2006 that he decided to do something about it.
"Kenny had been through the Dore Programme and suggested I gave it a try. I was a bit sceptical at first, but in the end I went through it with two of my children."
Scott says the Programme completely changed his life and had a huge impact on the lives of both his children. Today he is Dore's chief ambassador and often gives inspirational talks about the Programme.
"Almost every day I meet someone whose life has been changed after going through the Dore Programme. Some of their stories are very moving and it would be great to share them with the world."
