Dyslexia Awareness Month

What’s happening during Dyslexia Awareness Month?


Dyslexia Awareness Month is held during the month of October. Each year, IDA aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of dyslexia and offer resources to parents, teachers and individuals with dyslexia. As we embark on Dyslexia Awareness Month 2014, we are continuing our 2013 awareness campaign: Unlocking Dyslexia.

In 2013, we decided to raise the bar and provide a resource kit to each and every public elementary school in the United States. The purpose of the kit was to help raise awareness, share best practices, and be a resource to the school’s administration and staff.

This year, in response to overwhelming requests by parents for useful information to help their children meet the challenges of dyslexia and thrive in school as well as life, we are dedicating the 2014 campaign to families. Every dollar raised will help to provide handbooks to families across the world.

1 Dollar. 1 Handbook. 1 Family… Click here to learn more

What do Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen J. Cannell and Joe Pantoliano have in common with 1.4 billion children and adults worldwide?  Dyslexia. They are also featured in DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE, a powerfully touching and entertaining documentary that mixes humor and perspective with insight and analysis.  The film educates and illuminates many misconceptions about dyslexia, while underlining the need for raised awareness, early identification and social change.Director Harvey Hubbell V explores issues surrounding dyslexia through a very human, personal lens, weaving his own lifelong experience, the research of scientists and the practice of educators, with the life experiences of celebrities, politicians, and adults and children living with dyslexia. 

Intergenerational, multicultural and socio-economically diverse, DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE presents a complete picture and the most current information on dyslexia, promotes positive messaging, explores the power of family and community and is the first film to offer an alternative perspective of dyslexia as a learning difference, rather than a disability.


The release of DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE coincides with National Dyslexia Awareness month in October.  The film opens in Los Angeles on October 11th (New York on October 4th) a nationwide one night only screening event on October 17th, followed by a city by city theatrical tour with Director Harvey Hubbell V through early 2014.



Running Time:              87 minutes

Rating:                          Unrated

Language:                     English
