The Learning Disabilities Assoc. Fraser South Chapter (LDAFS) presents the movie “The Big Picture - Rethinking Dyslexia” directed by James Redford.

Dyslexia is the most common learning difference (one in five kids) yet the most publicly misunderstood. Join LDAFS for a documentary for parents, teachers and children.

The Movie is 52 minutes long and outlines some of the strengths that lead many dyslexics/learning disabled to success. The Big Picture also identifies many of the challenges that face Dyslexics. The film features Dylan Redford , a high school senior on his way to college, and several successful leaders including Richard Branson.

The screening takes place April 30, 7 p.m. at Panorama Ridge Secondary, 13220 64 Ave.
