- Read me differently
- An estimated 15-20 percent of the current U.S. population has dyslexia, and 4.5 million children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Prompted by a shock of recognition while studying to become a social worker, Sarah Entine began investigating how undiagnosed dyslexia and ADHD have affected three generations in her family. Grandmother, mother, and daughter are bound by blood and divided by a lack of understanding--since their complicated relationship turns, in part--on their shared struggles. This film can facilitate discussion on how learning disabilities influence family relationships and promote awareness and healing.
