In this enthralling film child psychologist Laverne Antrobus explores how growing children are affected by the common learning disability, dyslexia, through the eyes of children and families affect...ed by it. There have been some amazing and exciting developments in neuroscience that are beginning to unlock the dyslexic brain - and Laverne takes us on an incredible journey that shows us the fascinating new discoveries and theories. In this film we are taken into the world of a dyslexic and also discover why the brains of dyslexic people process information from the world around us so differently.
