If this describes you, please join us in an interactive evening of learning designed for parents and caregivers of students of all ages. The definition and characteristics of dyslexia will be presented to help address common myths and facts. Those in attendance will also participate in an activity designed to simulate the experiences students with characteristics of dyslexia encounter, while reading and writing.
