Henry Winkler’s Personal Journey
The Georgia Branch of the International Dyslexia Association will host a Dimensions of Dyslexia morning symposium featuring Henry Winkler, the iconic actor, author, director and producer on February 7, 2015 at the Rialto Center for the Arts in Atlanta. With wisdom and humor, Winkler will share his challenges and successes in his journey with dyslexia. Afterward, a panel of experts will discuss navigating resources and uncovering strategies for dyslexic students and adults. This Dimensions of Dyslexia symposium is appropriate for all audiences.
Winkler, who became famous for playing Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli on the 1970s and ’80s TV series “Happy Days,” expanded his career into directing and producing films, plays and more than 20 TV series. He began his own production company to make high-quality children’s programming and is the co-author of a popular Hank Zipzer series of children’s books.
After being diagnosed at age 30 with dyslexia, Winkler made a commitment to help children with learning difficulties. He has received international awards in recognition of his service to children with special needs.
