About StudyX Developer Jeff Minnis
Minnis was diagnosed at age 10 with a learning difference called Asperger syndrome, similar to autism, which made it difficult to focus, read and write.
Using a computer, Minnis could focus better, and it helped him learn to read.
[As an aside, there are many famous people and inventors with learning disabilities, including Bill Gates who reportedly has Asperger or is autistic. Gates responded well to the computer, too.]
Minnis envisioned software that would help him focus – like a personal study software assistant with games to make studying less boring. He expected there were others like him who learned better using a computer, so, while a computer science major at Webster University, he developed prototypes and began selling StudyX in 2005.
