It is important that what people with dyslexia experience is included in our mass media. I would like to thank Henry Winkler for attempting to do this.

His books are great. All 3 of my kids have read the series and each have loved it.

I don't want to sound cranky, but it seems like every celeb has had some disorder/ psychosis/ malady to overcome as a child, and then turns it into cash. If a regular common person with dyslexia had written those books the manuscripts would never have been published. They got noticed because a celeb wrote those books.

So many kids struggle with dyslexia still today. The schools are still very misinformed about this pervasive condition. I brought my son to Dyslexia Institutes in Glastonbury, CT. They knew how to help him and he significantly accelerated his rate of growth. Now he's happy and school is much less stressful. People need to seek better for their kids and stop trusting to schools for all the answers - they just don't have them.
