Picture of Hope

The documentary 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. The documentary was made by HBO in collaboration with the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity. The film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages and ultimately can be overcome. The documentary may be viewed in four parts at no charge on YouTube.
