Project Description

Listen to my delightful discussion with Academy Award-winning (and dyslexic) producter, Peggy Stern. In this recorded conversation, Peggy talks about her own experience with dyslexia, how that led her to create Dyslexiaville and all the amazing insights she’s learning from her student actors!

Peggy is the founder and CEO of Dyslexiaville, a multimedia resource focusing on social and emotional learning for children with dyslexia and attention issues. is such a unique and sorely needed resource for kids to create their own online community where they can celebrate their strengths and share their common experiences as kids with learning and attention issues.

Parent/Teacher Guide to Dyslexiaville:

  • Dyslexiaville produces research-based, original programming that builds social and emotional learning.
  • Short-form narrative series feature real kids with learning differences sharing real-life strategies for home and school.
  • Kids feel a sense of belonging in a community of other kids with learning differences.
  • Content helps to de-stigmatize learning differences, providing an antidote to the loneliness and low-self esteem.
