Read Me Differently is championing a national initiative to help adults and children better understand how learning disabilities affect life experiences outside of the classroom!
Gavin Newsom understands firsthand the pervasive ways in which dyslexia impacts one's life, from facing bullying as a child to eventually becomming a socially conscious public official. The former mayor of San Francisco, and current Lieutenant Governor of Caliofnria, is also living proof that having dyslexia shouldn't limit one's opportunities in life.
Newsom, who was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of 5, recently highlighted Read Me Differently as an important portrait of the complexities of living with this learning difference. He states, "Having dyslexia has not only affected my life, but the lives of those around me. Read Me Differently takes a brave and unique look at how these challenges play out in one family. If you want an insight inot the social and emotional side of dyslexia...see this film!"

A shock of recognition in social work school leads award-winning filmmaker Sarah Entine to explore how undiagnosed dyslexia and ADHD have impacted 3 generations in her family, starting with her own struggles. With surprising candor, vulnerability, and even a touch of humor, Read Me Differently reveals the strain of misunderstood learning differences on family relationships. It is a unique film that will generate thoughtful discussion whether in a classroom, work environment, or at home with family and friends.
An estimated 15-20% of the population in the U.S. has dyslexia, and 4.5 million children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
