Happy Days and The Scream actor Henry Winkler has been visiting Red Oaks Primary School in Swindon to talk about dyslexia.

Henry didn't realise that he suffered from dyslexia until his son was diagnosed a few years ago.  He admits that he struggled at school, but didn't know why.  Once he was grounded for 6 months because his parents thought he just wasn't trying hard enough.

Around 1 in 5 children experience learning challenges throughout their school years.  Henry is touring schools around the UK as part of the My Way campaign, while he also promotes his books, which are written about a dyslexic boy.
