Penobscot Bay YMCA to Present, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia
The Penobscot Bay YMCA will present, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia with Dr. Candice Bray and Dr. Cecilia Kinast, ABPdN on Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 pm. The viewing will be free to the community and held at the Teen Center on 10 Knowlton Street in Camden. This is a great opportunity to view this award winning film with a follow up discussion with experts in reading and learning disabilities.
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 not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.
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 and 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 beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.
