THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA a documentary directed by James Redford, will premiere on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 7 p.m. on HBO. The film focuses on a dyslexic high school student who pursues admission to a leading college – a challenge for a boy who didn’t learn to read until 4th grade. This student, Dylan, is Redford’s son. Additional accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts, and iconic leaders at the top of their fields, help us to understand that dyslexia, a persistent problem with learning to read, can be as great a gift as it sometimes is an obstacle.
The Hamlin Robinson School is pleased to offer this remarkable film on January 17th, 2013 6:30 in the HRS Learning Center. Credit hours will be available for teachers.
