His experience through the school system was hell. It is a journey he shares in a documentary title “The Truth About Reading”, presented by The John Corcoran Foundation via DNA Films to be released in January 2023.
Learning to read at 62 has opened David’s eyes to the connection between reading and comprehension literacy and why it has a direct impact on the ability to reach our true potential
