Elgin Filmmaker Embraces Dyslexia in Documentary
As Alejandro moved into second grade, things got even worse: He began complaining about headaches and throwing up at school, he said. That's when his grandma, a former teacher, suggested he be tested for dyslexia. And sure enough, Macias said, his son was dyslexic. That experience is what led Macias, a video editor for a graphic design firm in Barrington, to make the documentary "Embracing Dyslexia," now streaming online for free at embracingdyslexia.com.
