I am so thankful for this movie to raise awareness of dyslexia as both of my children are dyslexic and we are struggling with the school district for help each and every day! I have tried to fight with advocates and attorneys and I have yet to get the help for both of my children. I am now hiring a tutor to help them. The struggle with the schools is real, our district says they offer an IEP for students but then stuck them all on one General Education program, not individualized to meet their needs as dyslexics. I wish I could inform the state of CA what this school is doing but I have no idea where to start and once you do that, you face repercussions against you for fighting for what's right for your child. Its just wrong! My husband is Al's dyslexic and he was diagnosed by NYS schools over 30 years ago, he was lucky to have such an amazing support team and he is able to read and write. My children struggle each and every day and it affects their social/emotional wellbeing and no one cares! Its political and all about money and how they can save, not spend on these kids who need the help!
I hope this movie changes the eyes of many people and I will be sharing this movie with others. Thank you!
