About the Show

Imagine having to deal with each word you see as if you'd never seen it before.

About one in ten of us suffer with the reading disorder known as dyslexia.

As literacy becomes even more important in society, dyslexia is affecting a new generation.

dyslexia. In his life, Bruce Jenner has achieved many things. He is an Olympian, an actor, author and entrepreneur and he has dyslexia.

“How well kids learn to read and how far behind they are is a public health issue because it affects
everything that happens to them for the rest of their lives.

Louisa Moats, Director of Professional Development and Research Initiatives with Sopris West Educational Services

This national documentary, produced by WNED in Buffalo, New York, focuses on personal stories, educational best practices, and the latest scientific research. The program illuminates important contemporary issues surrounding dyslexia.

In the program we visit The Gow School outside Buffalo, New York and Edgewood Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland. We learn from professionals at Georgetown University, Jemicy School, and Jacksonville's Juvenile Courts.

Demystifying Dyslexia allows us to meet inspiring individuals who confront the challenges of dyslexia every day.
