Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who overcame dyslexia to graduate from law school and launch a political career as Stamford’s mayor and Connecticut’s governor, will be honored Thursday night in Washington, D.C., by the Lab School with a “2013 Outstanding Achiever with Learning Disabilities Award.”

The Lab School specializes in using alternate means to educate children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. The award is given as part of an annual fundraising dinner.
