We have gained special permission to share the link to the showcase, thanks to the kind people at KPJR films - for anyone who missed the sign up window.

It means we have to share your information with KPJR. So, we will share the link in good faith here, but please send me a direct email to robwalden@rweducation.org confirming that you're happy for me to send your name, email, country and organisation to KPJR Films for their records. (We are not allowed to create a separate form for this as part of our licence agreement).

Please also ensure that you don't share the link publicly. If you wish to share with trusted colleagues, you may do that - but please ensure that we receive permission to share the details, and that you ask them kindly NOT to share the link (significant problems can arise with licensing if we are responsible for leaking the film showcase publicly).

Thank you, and I hope that helps!

Best wishes,

Rob Walden

This film is part of an exclusive showcase of three films. If you sign up for this one, you'll get access to the others.

NOTE: If you find that the KPJR form (at the bottom of this description) is blocked by your browser security (e.g. in a school with tight web security), don't worry! By choosing this session on your personal schedule, you give us permission to share your email address with KPJR Directly - and they will send you a link to access the showcase.

A dyslexic high school student pursues admission to a leading college – a challenge for a boy who didn’t learn to read until 4th grade. Additional accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts, and iconic leaders at the top of their fields, help us to understand that dyslexia, a persistent problem with learning to read, can be as great a gift as it sometimes is an obstacle.
