Don’t miss your local screening of The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, an HBO documentary about dyslexia.

The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia clears up the misconceptions about dyslexia and paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.

The film provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders.

Pete Wright, a nationally recognized expert on special education law, will be the keynote speaker at Decoding Dyslexia Day, October 26, 2013 at the Byrd Theater in Richmond, VA.

Pete, who refers to himself as the Dyslexic, ADD attorney, will talk about his own struggles with learning differences. He will offer tips and strategies for parents to ensure their child receives a good education and learns to read.

This is a free event.  Make your reservation today!

Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.

Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia and Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia.

Directed by Jamie Redford, The Big Picture has joined hands with the Decoding Dyslexia movement.  Jamie’s wife, Kyle Redford, is the Education Editor at the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity.

    Pete do you have this dyslexia decoding on a CD? Would you also have a CD of strategies for addressing educational needs of dyslexia students? I am finding more need for those skills now that I am retired and substitute teaching locally.

    Thanks for considering my request.
