Free Film Screening: Journey Into Dyslexia

From the International Dyslexia Association’s website here: http://www.dyslexia-ncbida.org/event.10.1.11.html

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.

Among the notable adults with dyslexia who recount their struggles and triumphs in the film are consumer advocate Erin Brockovich; Ben Foss, inventor of the Intel Reader; Steve Walker, New England Pellet founder and CEO; micro sculptor Willard Wigan; and Dr. Carol Greider, 2009 Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine.

The SF screening is this coming Saturday, October 15th, starting at 10:15 AM. Admission is free and no RSVP is necessary. Check it out!
