The developmental reading disorder dyslexia impacts many, with some studies saying up to 20% of school students are dyslexic. Many of those individuals, however, aren’t properly diagnosed with the disorder and can wind up performing below their abilities in a school system that misunderstands them. This film, directed by James Redford, illustrates how various people, ranging from business titans Richard Branson and Charles Schwab to Redford’s own son, Dylan, incorporate different strategies to turn the challenge of dyslexia into a gift.
