We are opening the lines to the teachers and administrators. We want to know what you think about dyslexia. What you have been taught about dyslexia. Have you been given guidance about what to say in an IEP about dyslexia? What did you learn in your teacher/educator training about dyslexia? What do you want to know?
Please call in and share. We are creating non-judgmental and safe airwaves in order to hear your side of the story.
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.
