Mike Juggins is an artist and illustrator who also happens to be dyslexic. To explain his experiences and views on dyslexia he has created a short film, Dyslexia, Visual Jazz. The film is beautifully made and has a very professional feel to it.
Mike’s take on dyslexia is that it is an issue of learning styles and not any neurological problem. He argues that our school systems are too focused on an auditory based learning and fails to accommodate visual and kinetic learners. On the way he takes a pop at ‘business men selling cures’ and promotes an attitude reminiscent of the neurodiversity movement.
This film is pleasing and entertaining to watch and well worth four minutes of your time.
