Subject: Dyslexia Documentary

Hi there everyone.

My name is Michael Ciccone and I am a filmmaker from Australia who has recently been putting the finishing touches on a documentary about dyslexia.

A Life Less Ordinary is a touching film that brings the incredible firsthand accounts from several families as they strive to cope with their child's learning difficulty. Often trapped in a world of isolation and unknown, this documentary provides reassurance to parents and children at a time when they need it most.

Still a few weeks away from actual completion I am releasing a few short teasers to the web to hopefully generate discussion and maybe receive a little feedback from people such as your self.

The videos can be watched here:

I know now, through the making of this film, what a trying time this can be for any child, or any parent. Though hopefully this documentary helps you understand that you are not the only person who must travel this path, and there are some great resources for assistance out there!

All the best.

Michael Ciccone

Very happy to see others trying to raise awareness regarding dyslexia. I look forward to reading more updates -- as you get closer to final production.
