Listen to how they helped their child, student or themselves to understand what it means to be dyslexic and how to accept that being dyslexic is a part of you, but it doesn’t have to define you. Jump into the conversation with your questions and own experiences.Hosted by: Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library Register:theoceancountylibrary.org/events?trumbaEmbed=view%3Devent%26eventid%3D155297228 ...

Today, we celebrate our 10th Anniversary! On Oct 18, 2011, a handful of NJ parents decided to form a group so parents could connect with other parents to share experiences and learn from each other. Soon after, we decided on a mission statement and three-part mission action items.Decoding Dyslexia is a grassroots movement driven by families concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within our public schools. We aim to: 1. Raise dyslexia awareness2. Empower families to support their children3. Inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in all public schoolsOver these 10 years, many parents, children, legislators, and teachers have spoken up and stepped up at the grassroots, state, and federal levels to make a difference. There are now Decoding Dyslexia groups in all 50 states, D.C., the U.S. Military, 6 Canadian provinces, Bermuda, and Tanzania plus numerous organic dyslexia-related social media support groups that were started by others. 47+ states have passed dyslexia legislation, including 3 laws, 2 joint resolutions, and a Dyslexia Handbook in NJ. While there is still much work to be done, we HAVE moved the needle in a big way compared to where we started 10 years ago. Our national and international grassroots efforts have appeared in documentary films, videos, newspapers, online news sources, podcasts, TV news shows, and even TIME magazine! YOU are a part of the Decoding Dyslexia Movement every time you share an interesting article, a poignant or funny meme or simply sharing your story with someone else. Keep up the good work!Below are some photos we took at our recent anniversary celebration with many of our members and supporters (past and current) since our founding. Here's to the next 10 years together!!#saydyslexia #decodingdyslexia ... See MoreSee Less

Decoding Dyslexia - NJ
Decoding Dyslexia-NJ celebrates 10 years! Our beginnings… In October 2011, eight parents took a train ride to New York City to attend a National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) luncheon. On that trip, we shared our stories, our struggles, our heartbreaks, and our frustrations and anger about trying to help our dyslexic children and getting nowhere within our public schools. No one was from the same NJ town, but we all had similar stories, similar journeys. We were virtually strangers to each other. By the end of the day, we declared that someone should do something to fix the system and to help other parents like us. We decided that collectively, maybe we could be that “someone”. ...
