Journey Into Dyslexia – documentary
I just returned from the Kildonan School where I watched a screening of the HBO documentary Journey-Into-Dyslexia: Great Minds Think Differently, by Academy Award-winning filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond. It profiles a number of successful dyslexic people – artists, inventors, students, and entrepreneurs – who have faced a world stacked against them and risen to that challenge. They’ve all learned to see their dyslexia as a positive aspect of their identity. The film also examines the neurological basis of dyslexia, common to 10% of Americans, yet 35% of entrepreneurs.
