The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia

The award winning documentary was produced by James Redford with medical input provided by Dr. Sally Shaywitz from the Yale Center for Dyslexia. This 52 minute long movie features Dylan Redford, a high school senior on his way to college and several successful leaders (such as Richard Branson and Charles Schwab).

The Big Picture is an inspiring documentary for parents, teachers and children (ages 10 yrs. and older) to promote education and understanding about dyslexic learning styles. The movie outlines some of the strengths that lead many dyslexics to success and also identifies many of the challenges that face dyslexics every day. This film was featured at Sundance Film Festival and showcased as one of 20 Must See Documentaries Streaming On Netflix.

This movie will be followed by a Q & A session featuring board members of the DC Capital Area Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (DCIDA).
