Does your child struggle with reading, writing, or spelling? Are you a teacher and want to know more about specific learning disability (dyslexia), other reasons why far too many students have trouble learning to read, and what can be done about it? Join us on Sunday, May 19th at Southeast Library (near Eastern Market) at 2 PM to meet concerned parents of struggling readers and like-minded educators. Learn why so many DC school children read below grade level, what resources are available, and how Decoding Dyslexia DC is advocating for changes in education policy.

The topic of this meeting will be: Understanding Dyslexia and Essential Elements of an Effective Intervention.
Laurie Moloney, Certified Academic Language Therapist and President of the DC Capital Area Branch of the International DyslexiaAssociation, will give a brief talk on the reading crisis and how to solve it.

About Decoding Dyslexia DC:

Decoding Dyslexia – DC  is a grassroots movement driven by DC families concerned about the limited access to educational interventions for students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties within our schools. We aim to raise awareness and empower families to support their children. We also want to inform policy-makers on best practices for screening, identifying, remediating, and supporting students with dyslexia and reading difficulties in DC.
