Celebrate Dyslexia Awareness Month

10/05/2016 - 5:30pm

Central Library - Children's Program Room

An estimated 60 million Americans are dyslexic, roughly 1 of every 5 people! But how much do we know about this invisible disability? Join staff, students, and families from Madison's Children's Dyslexia Center to learn more about dyslexia and how we can all support our kids, students, friends, and neighbors who struggle to read printed words.
 
A light dinner will be served before a short film screening and a brief panel discussion highlighting local resources. Young people ages 8 and up especially welcome! RSVPs to youth@madisonpubliclibrary.org or 266-6345 are appreciated but not required.
