HomedocumentaryDyslexia Documentary in Production

For those of you who follow me on facebook, you may remember a link I’d shared about the Embracing Dyslexia documentary. At that point, they were still trying to raise funds on Kickstarter.

Fortunately, they met their goal and surpassed it!

I’m really excited about this, since it looks like it’ll be so easily accessible to the general public. I went through the clips they have up on their web page, and I figured I’d share the one that struck me the most.

After speaking with teacher friends and family, I already knew about the distressing lack of training, but it’s nice to see that further acknowledged.

This, of course, has a profound impact on students’ performance in school and their emotional well being. How can someone be expected to function in a system which actively works against the way they’re wired and refuses to see the need for accommodation?

In any case, I highly suggest checking the rest of the videos out, and keeping an eye on this documentary.

In unrelated news, those of you who enjoy math or just like puns, happy Pi Day!

As an explanation for those not in the know, Pi is 3.14. Because it’s March 14th, or 3/14. Well, I’m sure you see the connection.

If you have a hankering for pie, use today as an excuse to have some! I plan to.

Looks like a very interesting book. I’ve added it to my list of books to review after finishing Gift of Dyslexia.
