Embracing Dyslexia

The powerful documentary film, Embracing Dyslexia by Luis Macias, gives viewers an insider's perspective what life is like living with dyslexia in moving testimonials from parents of children with dyslexia and dyslexic adults. Throughout the film they reveal the life-altering impact the word dyslexia had on their lives, including the hurdles each has faced, as well as the success they experienced throughout their journey. Hear from educators, researchers and dyslexia experts as they explain the importance of early detection through screenings and various resources and strategies available once a diagnosis is made. The message that echoes throughout the hour long film is one of hope and that by recognizing and fostering the natural gifts and abilities of a child with dyslexia, they can shift the mindset from feeling stupid and experiencing failure on a daily basis to believing in themselves and knowing that they can be successful.
