Journey Into Dyslexia – documentary

May 14, 2011

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.
