Henry Winkler

Henry Winkler talks about living with dyslexia and how he is helping kids today discover their full potential.

We know legendary actor, producer and director Henry Winkler for his role as Arthur Fonzarelli or "The Fonz" on Happy Days, but growing up Henry's days weren't always so happy.  He had a hard time in school because he could barely read.  Like so many kids, his dyslexia was mistaken for laziness.  
 
Today, his mission is to bring learning disabilities out into the open and help children discover their full potential.  He is the author of the New York Times bestselling Here's Hank book series, which tells the story of a boy who is dyslexic.
 
The Here's Hank book series can be found online and in your local bookstore.  For more information, click here.
