See ‘Dislecksia: The Movie’ for FREE on May 14 at Event Center Auditorium
A FREE showing of ‘Dislecksia: The Movie’ will be at the Des Moines Event Center Auditorium on Thursday, May 14, starting at 6:30 p.m.
DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE is an engaging documentary that weaves vintage classroom footage, celebrity interviews and the comedic touch of dyslexic director Harvey Hubbell V into an engrossingly entertaining film on a serious subject. In the first film to discuss dyslexia as a learning difference, not a learning disability, Hubbell rallies a team of celebrated neuroscientists, heroic educators, high profile celebrities and business leaders with dyslexia who are advocates of Harvey’s beliefs. The subjects of the film showcase the most up-to-date information and in doing so, a blueprint emerges on how best to manage this learning difference that up to 1.4 billion people cope with daily.
