Dyslexia Day-Community Partners 2021

SAVE THE DATE:  To be determined for 2021

 

As a Community Partner you are pledging your support for our mission and goals:

Our Mission: To raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children, and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.

Our Goals

• A universal definition and understanding of “dyslexia” in the state education code

• Mandatory teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and appropriate intervention strategies

• Mandatory early screening tests for dyslexia

• Mandatory dyslexia remediation programs, which can be accessed by both general and special education populations

• Access to appropriate “assistive technologies” in the public school setting for students with dyslexia

The names of our Community Partners will be listed in materials and handouts to be distributed in connection with Dyslexia Day at the Georgia Capitol 2021.  We will post a deadline for printed materials in late 2020. 

Please Sign Up Here.

There is no financial obligation associated with being  a Community Partner but there will be an opportunity to help us cover the expenses of this event.   As a grass-roots organization, with no funds to cover expenses, we rely on volunteers and partners to help make this event a success and will distribute a sign-up genius link in the weeks prior to the event that includes some ways to contribute if you are able to.

We appreciate your support!
