Shark Tank star Daymond John, who has dyslexia, chats with his mother in this series of exclusive Understood videos. Together they share stories—including how she encouraged him to read and how he started FUBU, his clothing line. They talk about “the lightbulb moment” when he figured out he had dyslexia. And she gives her advice for other parents of kids with dyslexia.
