Creativity Overcomes Anxiety

Vermont's television station WCAX aired a feature about a boy who recently self-published a book to help him overcome his anxieties about dyslexia. 

Reporter Connor Cyrus talks to Carter Somaini and his mother, Rebecca, about the circumstances that led to creating The Boy and the Bat and what they hope it achieves:

Carter's mom, Rebecca Somaini, says the self-published story is personal because having a son with dyslexia can be isolating, but that it shouldn't be. She wants it to be used as a resource to give kids and parents hope that they are not alone.

The printed version of the story includes a short video, but there is also a longer video here.
