|Welcome to week 2 of #DyslexiaAwarenessMonth! You may be asking, why #GoRedForDyslexia? The red marker used to highlight the mistakes in written work is all too familiar for people with dyslexia around the world. Groups advocating for people with dyslexia have chosen red in order to take back its meaning and globally promote dyslexia awareness in a fun and positive way. And, if you haven’t signed up yet, please don’t forget to sign up for DyslexiaCon 2021! It’s fully virtual; sign up here: dyslexiacon.org
|October is #DyslexiaAwarenessMonth! Did you know that dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing, and spelling difficulties? It’s much more common than you think. In fact, 15-20% of the population has a language-based learning disability. And of the students with specific learning disabilities receiving special education services, 70-80% have deficits in reading. We are here to support you, your ʻohana, and students with dyslexia. Through the month of October, we will be sharing dyslexia facts – participate in our weekly trivia to win prizes! #GoRedForDyslexia #YouAreNotAlone|
