The trials and triumphs of four people facing a lifelong struggle with
learning. Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading and writing
difficulties, affecting about 10 per cent of the population. The Knowledge
Network documentary Deciphering Dyslexia is designed
to raise awareness and provide an understanding of dyslexia, to bring a human
face to this invisible disability and to reduce the stigma surrounding it. The
film profiles four individuals and their families. Their stories, along with
expert commentary, illustrate the likely causes of the disability and the most
scientifically sound strategies for intervention.
