Lifespan development disorders are psychological disorder, which are characterized by abnormal development. It is a severe development delay that occurs to certain people.  Since learning disability is one of major lifespan development disorders under a psycholinguistic umbrella, this study aims to elaborate and analyse learning disability of dyslexia suffered by Ishaan, the main character in “Like Stars on Earth” movie as the unit analysis. The two primary objectives are  (1) to identify dyslexia symptoms; and (2) to describe the problems and its effect due to his dyslexia. This study adopted a descriptive qualitative approach by using content analysis method since it emphasized on describing the phenomena of dyslexia on texts, and scenes of the movie. Moreover, the findings were presented in the form of table and narrative or textual description. The findings revealed that firstly, of 37 symptoms of dyslexia, 31 symptoms occurred in Ishaan. Secondly, Ishaan experienced all types of emotional and social problems. It is inferred that dyslexics needs to get the support from parents, teachers and people surrounding to find out their truly other talents to improve their self confidence as early as possible. In addition, specific holistic approach dealing with social and emotional problem conjunction with education aspect must be provided as well.
