- Misunderstood Minds
- Program Number
- Program Description
For one in five students, learning is an exhausting and frustrating struggle. Often mistakenly called "lazy" or "stupid" by their teachers, classmates, and even their families, these children may be suffering from debilitating learning problems. If not addressed, the problems can have a devastating impact on the student’s self-esteem and future academic and social success. Misunderstood Minds shines a spotlight on this painful subject, following the stories of five families who try, together with experts, to solve the mysteries of their children’s learning difficulties. Produced and directed by renowned Frontline filmmaker Michael Kirk, this 90-minute special shows the children’s problems in a new light, and serves as a platform for a nationwide dialogue on how best to manage young, vulnerable, and misunderstood minds.
