For Dyslexia Awareness Month, we co-hosted the film, Dislecksia: The Movie, with the Park City Film Series. In this film, Emmy award-winning filmmaker Harvey Hubbell V and his crew explore the unique nature of how each of us learn. Hubbell, dyslexic superstars Billy Bob Thornton and Joe Pantoliano, world-renowned brain scientists and researchers, students and all share their insights in an effort to revolutionize education.
150 people were in attendance and the film was followed by an excellent and, at times, humorous panel discussion moderated by Leslie Thatcher. Panelists included Jack Amiel, Ari Ioannides & Alex Hall, who shared their experiences living with dyslexia, and child neuropsychologist, Jenise Jensen, Ph.D.
If you missed it, it is available on the Dislecksia: The Movie Website for a small price.
