When Peter was 5, a psychologist told his parents that he had “minimal brain dysfunction” and “would never go to college”. His mother reacted to this by getting together with Elizabeth Friedus and starting the Gateway School.
Peter skipped 12th grade, did college in 3 years, got his BA at age 20 and now has 2 MAs and a PhD. He wrote a book called Screwed up Somehow but not Stupid: Life with a Learning Disability.
He is a freelance statistician, a speaker about LD issues and a philanthropist.
