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. Directed by James Redford, the film explains misconceptions about the condition and paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it. Order tickets via Eventbrite at foothillbigpicture.eventbrite.com

Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Drs. Sally and Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia & Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia. 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.
