Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Has a necessary charge to it, but also a distractingly goofy side."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Dislecksia: The Movie is an exuberantly didactic documentary, and director Harvey Hubbell has done his homework."
‑ Daphne Howland, Village Voice
"This breezily entertaining and informative documentary deserves attention."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Dealing with an important subject, this doc has moments of genuine enlightenment but is nearly undone by aggressively sophomoric handling which is in itself a strangely unintended insult to its audience's intelligence."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
"An informative, entertaining survey about what dyslexia is and how to treat it."
‑ Daniel M. Gold, New York Times
"It's packaged in an easygoing 83 minutes that sometimes gets too cutesy for its own good but never wears out its welcome."
‑ Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com
