Journey Into Dyslexia

I highly recommend HBO’s ‘Journey Into Dyslexia’. It interviewed scientists, professors, children with dyslexia and adults with dyslexia. Hearing them articulate their story was moving. Many viewed their dyslexia as a curse when they were younger in school. Some had suicide plans. Many had teachers who singled them out as failures to the rest of the class. They hated being different and not fitting into ‘the box’. However, as adults, they’ve come to realize that different isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just different. Their dyslexia helped them to create and accomplish all that they have. Many now see it as a gift. Jonathan Mooney, author and public speaker shares more about this important film.
