Watch Henry Winkler (aka The Fonz) Discuss Living With Dyslexia

Last updated 5 years ago

Ayyyyyyyyyy! If you've seen TV's Happy Days, you know the supremely confident character Arthur Fonzarelli - aka The Fonz- who never lost his cool. 
Henry Winkler was cast as Fonzi at age 28. Three years later, he was diagnosed with dyslexia and finally understood why he had struggled with reading his entire life. He says, "When I was 31, I realized I wasn't stupid, I wasn’t lazy, I wasn't, you know, not trying to live up to my potential. I had something with a name."
Years after this discovery, Winkler began writing about his own childhood experience. He has published 17 books featuring a fourth grader named Hank Zipzer who struggles with dyslexia.
If you have concerns about your child's reading, set him or her on the path to success with the Literacy & Language Center in San Francisco. We specialize in creating individual programs for those with learning difficulties including dyslexia and autism. Call us today at (415) 242-1205 for more information about our programs.
