As reviewed by Ellen Tanner Marsh, a New York Times best-selling author
With honesty and grace, Sagmiller tells the story of his own battle with dyslexia and the many challenges he had to overcome and how. Growing up in the 1960s, he faced uncaring teachers and worried, angry parents who didn't know any better in dealing with an affliction that we now know affects one in five children. But Sagmiller never gave up, persevering against considerable odds to attend college, get a job and find his niche.
This is an important DVD for anyone struggling with dyslexia, for teachers of dyslexic students and for families with a dyslexic loved one. The message here is clear: even dyslexics can flourish in school and in everyday life and succeed in careers of choice.
Girard Sagmiller not only overcame his disability, he triumphed. And here, in this wise and inspiring DVD, he shows an insightful path for others to triumph as well.
