THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA, 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. 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.


Screening will be followed by a discussion. Clock hours will be available for teachers.

Panelists include:
Stephan Blanford, Educational Consultant
Sonja Bradford, Speech and Language Pathologist
Brock and Fernette Eide, authors of The Dyslexic Advantage
Susan Gjolmesli, Director of the Bellevue College Disability Resource Center
Elizabeth Smith, founder of KinderMinds
Beverly Wold, President of the Slingerland Institute for Literacy
