A Problem with Words

A weekly reflection on a topical issue. Stella Tillyard describes her struggle with dyslexia, from her childhood to now, for the first time.

"My problem with words is something I have never written down or spoken out about".

The writer, Stella Tillyard, talks about her "battle" with dyslexia - from her childhood to now.

She vividly describes the "gremlin that takes me by the hand, pulls my confidence away, and makes my heart beat too fast when I have - as now - to read aloud".

Producer: Adele Armstrong.
