The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. 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. 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.

Genre: Documentary

Journey into Dyslexia explores the phenomenon of people who have enormous difficulty with words–people who all too often are pushed aside as disabled or, cruelly, labeled stupid. The most powerful aspect of the documentary is the straightforward interviews with dyslexics themselves, among them young students grappling with these issues in the classroom; a professor at Johns Hopkins, whose son is also dyslexic; famed consumer advocate Erin Brockovich; a college recruiter who first heard about dyslexia on The Cosby Show; and a micro-miniature sculptor, who makes expressive sculptures that fit inside the eye of a needle.

Dyslexia research has made dramatic progress since the mid-1980s. Once discounted as a "middle-class myth," dyslexia is now the subject of a complex—and confusing—body of theoretical and empirical research. In Dyslexia, Learning, and the Brain, leading dyslexia researchers Roderick Nicolson and Angela Fawcett provide a uniquely broad and coherent analysis of dyslexia theory.
