Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Salma Hayek, Jay Leno and Richard Branson are all reported to be dyslexic. One-third of all millionaires in England are dyslexic. In fact, about one in seven Americans has some degree of dyslexia. It's a condition that makes it hard to read the way other people do. But by using special techniques, taught or self-invented, most dyslexics can learn to function normally.
A lot of dyslexics are brilliant, talented, and successful. The documentary "Dislecksia: The Movie" presents the latest scientific knowledge about dyslexia - with the experiences of dyslexics, its causes, its effects, and what can be done about it. The documentary also includes interviews with dyslexics Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen J. Cannell and Sarah Brown.
