Journey into Dyslexia (HBO, 2011) presents profiles of dyslexic students and adults who share their experiences of struggling in school and then succeeding in life. Academy-Award winning filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond examine the complexities of this differently structured brain and debunk the myths and misperceptions about dyslexia. This film reveals that many adult professionals who once struggled to learn in school consider their dyslexia a unique gift and the defining reason behind their success. Discussion to follow film screening.
