Many professional adults highlighted in this documentary describe dyslexia as “a gift” and “a wonderful form of intelligence”. People featured in the documentary range from consumer advocate Erin Brockovich to Intel® Reader inventor Ben Foss.
“Journey Into Dyslexia” reveals that the majority of US students with dyslexia simply are not getting the help they need.
If you or someone you know has dyslexia, the Intel Reader may be something to look at. The Intel Reader reads printed text aloud – it’s as easy as point, click and listen. Learn more at CTL’s Intel Reader page.
