Journey into Dyslexia
To honor Dyslexia Awareness Month in October, the Northern California Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (NCBIDA) will offer a showing of Journey into Dyslexia at the Main Library, followed by a short panel discussion with additional information and Q&A.
Journey into Dyslexia presents profiles of students and adults with dyslexia 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. Journey into Dyslexia originally aired on HBO2 on May 11, 2011.
