A local documentary which explores dyslexia through the stories of New Zealanders.
Decoding Dyslexia director Janina Nearn says that the condition effects people all over the world and New Zealand is no exception.
"As many as 50,000 children could be suffering unnecessarily from dyslexia because it is not acknowledged in this country. Without the proper teaching and understanding, few will reach their full potential in life. I made this documentary to create more awareness on the subject and hopefully make a difference," says Janina.
