Does your child struggle with reading, writing, or spelling?

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.

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.
