Hey Kids!!!

  • Bring a Poster with a Slogan:  Please show your support by bringing a poster.  Examples:  #SayDyslexia; Childhood Has No Rewind – Start Seeing Dyslexia; Equitable Education for ALL; or Dyslexia: Solutions for Struggling Readers

  • Tell Us What it’s like having dyslexia:  Any child interested in speaking will be welcome to the podium. We would like children to bring an index card with their answer to a question such as: What do you wish your teacher knew about dyslexia? What was it like in school before finding out you had dyslexia?  How long did you struggle with reading before you found out you had dyslexia?  

 

For Families:

  • Meet with your Legislators:  We highly encourage you to schedule a meeting with your Legislators.  Your legislators told us, they want to hear from families in their district!  See our website for more information. You can find your MN Senator and MN House Member at http://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts/.
