The Big Picture Roadshow makes its final stop at the International Dyslexia Association's Annual Conference on November 9th!
Join Learning Ally, Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity, Decoding Dyslexia, Eye to Eye, IDA, Literate Nation and The 1in5 Initiative as they come together in partnership to amplify the national conversation about dyslexia, expand public awareness, and energize community-building efforts across the US. A free screening of the documentary will follow the Closing Reception of the IDA Annual Conference.
The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.
Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia and Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.
