Founded in 2015, NoticeAbility is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping students with dyslexia identify their unique strengths and build self-esteem. We incorporate the neuroscience of dyslexia, the best practices of special education, and the power of EdTech to construct enrichment curricula and teacher training programs for global distribution.
NoticeAbility was founded with the encouragement and mentorship of professors at Harvard University, MIT and Boston University. NoticeAbility’s enrichment curricula provide educators with practical tools to empower their students. Each course introduces students to professions that highlight the neurological strengths of the dyslexic mind (entrepreneurship, engineering, architecture, and art). Delivered through blended instruction (e-learning and classroom activities), NoticeAbility’s curricula enable students to access academic content through multiple modalities (video instruction, graphics, illustrated aids & audio presentations) while participating in project-based exercises that foster social-emotional learning and executive functioning skills.
Today, NoticeAbility’s curricula are being used to empower students with dyslexia in 31 states and 26 countries.

As a first-generation American, Cristina’s Cuban and Mexican heritage left her with a strong desire to succeed. However, her undiagnosed dyslexia left Cristina discouraged. Today, the former local Miss America titleholder uses her influence to destigmatize neurodiversity.

Bodhi was the inspiration behind NoticeAbility. At 7 years old, Bodhi built his first business plan (with dad’s help). By the time he was 8, Bodhi was speaking publicly about his dyslexia and its cognitive advantages. Today, Bodhi teaches NoticeAbility classes and speaks internationally.
