Being stigmatized with the label “learning disabled” can have a devastating effect on children struggling with dyslexia. Facing the social and academic challenges of growing up and going to school when dealing with words is a daily struggle, children living with dyslexia are the focus of this inspiring documentary. Produced by the Oscar®- and Emmy®- winning team of Alan and Susan Raymond (who created the groundbreaking PBS documentary series An American Family), this 77-minute film addresses the public’s misunderstanding of learning differences and demonstrates the great potential of each dyslexic individual. Aside from discussing the daily struggles of youth coping with learning differences, this film incorporates interviews with professionals in the fields of medicine and education who assess the road ahead technologically and academically and shares stories by successful adults who have dyslexia.
