10 ideas for celebrating!
We believe real change happens from small daily actions by people that do something meaningful. This October we encourage you to do something meaningful to raise awareness in your community. And share what you did! (on our Facebook page or add your comment below)
1. Share information on dyslexia with your teacher, school or principal. Ask to host an informational dyslexia bulletin board at your school or library.
2. Ask your PTA or school to host a screening of Embracing Dyslexia (free on YouTube) or The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia We will help promote.
3. Share with your school officials moving testimony from the The Science of Dyslexia hearing in Washington DC.
4. Come out and own it! Tell a friend or co-worker your story.
5. Join our ME TOO! Campaign
6. Love social media? Join the D.A.N.C.E. – Dyslexia Awareness and show us your moves!
7. Distribute postcards around town about dyslexia. (contact us, we have plenty)
8. Buy and wear your dyslexia awareness band!
9. Give a child or an adult a voice. Send us a video to share on Facebook. The video question is: What do you want people to know about you regarding your dyslexia?
10. Be creative and think out-of-the-box. (We know you can!)

1 thought on “October is Dyslexia Awareness Month”
Dyslexia is something that many individuals struggle with young and old. It does not have to limit anyone’s capabilities, it is simply requires an adjustment in the approach to learning.
