Dislecksia: The Movie (Cumming, GA)

February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The mission of Dislecksia: The Movie is to provide a critical tool for creating that public awareness. It will educate a wide public on what dyslexia is – not a sign of stupidity as so many believe, but of a need to learn in a different way. It will tell parents of dyslexics what they can do to ensure that their children are properly diagnosed and given the kind of instruction they need. It will help schools understand what they need to do to identify those at risk for dyslexia and to provide the instruction that will allow them to learn. It will help educators gain support from parents and the community to provide what dyslexic kids need. And it will help dyslexics themselves understand that they have the potential to learn successfully, but that they have to learn in a different way.

A panel of experts will be available for Q & A after the screening.

This Learning Ally/ DNF / IDA-GA / DDGA Outreach Event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you please register to attend here. Please let others know about this event.
