This documentary is just under an hour-long, but it is well worth watching. I actually ended up crying at the end because there were a lot of things that I didn’t realise were associated with dyslexia that I’ve just put down to being my own personal quirks. It’s so nice to hear about other people’s experiences and just how similar they have been to my own journey.
This presentation by Professor Jack Horner is inspiring, interesting and funny. Now where did I put my hammer?
