Did Albert Einstein have a learning disability?
There is a lot of controversy regarding Albert Einstein's learning disability. People have attempted to prove that he wasn't dyslexic, however most of the research that I did
shows that he had some dyslexia symptoms. He was an extraordinary man, actually he is considered the most important scientist of the twentieth century.
Einstein was a German-born physicist, who later acquired citizenship from Switzerland and the USA.
He had difficulties to speak, some research shows that he didn't say a word until the age of 4. He was a very patient and methodical child and did not like to show off. He used to avoid the company of other children of his age.
He received his primary education at a Catholic school, a very difficult period of his life that he overcame thanks to violin lessons that his mother would give him. He was fascinated
by the violin which he continued playing for the rest of his days. He was also introduced at an early age to Algebra by his uncle Jacob Einstein.
He graduated in 1900, obtaining the degree of professor of mathematics and physics, however spent almost 2 years trying to find a teaching position at the University.
He finally accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office.
