Raise Dyslexia Awareness at your Local Library

Click here to see: Library Dyslexia Awareness Campaign flyer

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month, but any time of year is a good time to spread the word about dyslexia. Decoding Dyslexia-NJ asks YOU to help us increase dyslexia awareness through a collaboration with your local library.

Sponsor an information share session, put up a display of your favorite books on dyslexia, have a story-time read aloud of “Thank You Mr. Falker” by Patricia Polacco, or screen the film “Embracing Dyslexia” (a documentary available free online, or on YouTube).

Libraries fill up their calendars and displays in advance, so call yours today and make arrangements for next October or anytime of year!

Here are some examples from past year’s campaigns:

Past Events:

  • October 5, 2016: An Early Intervention Lecture with Dr. Gaab
    Location: The Cambridge School, Pennington, NJ
    Decoding Dyslexia-NJ, in partnership with the Cambridge School, present a special, free event this fall on Early Intervention. Our speaker, Dr. Gaab, is a highly-regarded expert on neuroscience and currently doing extensive research on auditory and language processing in the human brain and its applications for the development of typical and atypical language and literacy skills. Recently, she was featured on the Boston’s Chronicle show. Here’s a link to her segment of that feature story on dyslexia.
  • March 10, 2016: The State of DYslexia in New Jersey
    Location: Ryder University
    In 2013/14, Governor Christie signed 3 dyslexia-related bills into law. So where are we now? How have these new laws impacted our schools, our teachers and our children? Come spend an evening with Decoding Dyslexia–NJ and distinguished guests to discuss how the new dyslexia laws have played out in the real world setting. Learn about the changes to educational environments and the shifts in attitudes and thought processes taking place in many districts across the state. If things seem slow to move in your community, join us and hear from other parents & educators about how to take steps towards improved outcomes in your school. Detailed examples of implementation and resources will be presented.
