We are honored to have the Director and Producer of Embracing Dyslexia join us on August 6, 2013. He will be talking about the impetus of his film and what he learned along the way. Director Luis Macias has always been a storyteller and a lover of cinema. As a teenager he wrote several short stories and watched more films than any one person should. After a brief swim in the pre-med pool, he found that he could not escape his love of films and of crafting stories. That is when he enrolled at Chicago's Columbia College and majored in film and video editing.
Since 1997, Luis has been working as a video editor for a graphic design firm located in the suburbs of Chicago where he gets to use his storytelling talents with every new project. In addition to client-based videos, he has had the opportunity to produce and edit six short documentary films for director Greg Samata, several of which have had successful runs in the film festival circuit.
Embracing Dyslexia is Luis’ directorial debut. This film is a personal project that came to life after he and his wife learned that their son’s struggles with reading, writing and spelling were because he had dyslexia, a revelation that has changed their lives for the better.

Dr Richard Selznick welcomes guest Ben Foss
The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan: A Blueprint for Renewing Your Child’s Confidence
Ben Foss is prominent inventor, entrepreneur and activist who founded Headstrong Nation a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the dyslexic community. He is also the inventor of the Intel Reader® a device CNN called “too ground breaking to ignore.” The Intel Reader® is a mobile device that takes photos of text and reads it aloud on the spot to people who have difficulty with text, creating what Ben calls “a ramp into a book.”
Identified as a dyslexic at the age of eight, Foss became successful by developing a unique approach to his disability. After years of hiding his dyslexia, he challenged himself to use it as a bridge to the rest of the world, realizing that if he thought of himself as being “from dyslexia,” he could integrate his history and harness his strengths. As a compassionate and skilled speaker, he shares this message with Fortune 500 companies, human resources and public policy organizations, and colleges and universities across the country.
Dr. Joanne Pierson and Dr. Lauren Katz from Dyslexia Help at The University of Michigan, are our guests on this episode of The Inclusive Class Podcast.
Our interview will focus on ways to include students with dyslexia in the general education classroom. We will talk about signs and symptoms of dyslexia, ways in which teacher's can help dyslexic students access the curriculum and what the outcomes are.
