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?
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/
