What do Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen J. Cannell and Joe Pantoliano have in common with 1.4 billion children and adults worldwide? Dyslexia. They are also featured in DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE, a powerfully touching and entertaining documentary that mixes humor and perspective with insight and analysis. The film educates and illuminates many misconceptions about dyslexia, while underlining the need for raised awareness, early identification and social change.
Director Harvey Hubbell V explores issues surrounding dyslexia through a very human, personal lens, weaving his own lifelong experience, the research of scientists and the practice of educators, with the life experiences of celebrities, politicians, and adults and children living with dyslexia.

Thousands of students have passed through the doors at TT Minor. It is indeed, a special place. All of us at Hamlin Robinson are honored to call TT Minor home. This location has proven a good step for HRS, our students, their families and the greater Seattle community. HRS serves students with dyslexia and related language difficulties.
Thanks to the larger space, we have been able to increase enrollment from 106 in 2009 to a projected 190 in 2013-14. We have also been able to extend our reach into the community by developing the HRS Learning Center which provides over 200 tutoring sessions each month as well as professional development opportunities for parents, educators and professionals.
However, this was always intended to be a temporary location. Our five year lease with Seattle Public Schools expires in 2015.
On nearly an acre of land, our new home will be located just behind the Oberto’s retail store on Massachusetts Avenue South.
