About Dyslexic Guy


My name is Thom Davies, I’m a filmmaker and over the last four years have been making a documentary for school age dyslexics. Being dyslexic myself it’s the documentary I wish I could have seen at that age – a positive and upbeat mix of comic sketches, animation and inspiring stories from others who persevered in education to realise their potential.  The film concentrates on what we can do not what we can’t, and the sense of humour we must develop to survive it. Once I was able to laugh at ‘it’ life felt so much better as the ultimate weapon against it is humour – now far from being ashamed of it, I choose to see it as a super power!
