Organizations across the country are promoting dyslexia awareness. We invite you to check out the many ways to get involved and promote awareness. The perfect place to start? Join the Decoding Dyslexia-MO movement, of course! Scroll down to find more ways to get involved.
Becoming a member is simple. There are no dues or fees and any level of participation is valued. Perhaps you want to volunteer your time and talent. Or you simply want to receive legislative alerts. A key to Decoding Dyslexia’s success across the country has been the willingness of individuals such as yourself to share their story and knowledge with other parents and educators in their day to day life.

Start A Conversation About Dyslexia and Learning Disabilities
Ever find yourself at a loss for words when trying to explain to others what it really means when you say, “My child has a learning disability”? What do you say to your own parents for whom the concept of dyslexia or learning disabilities might not be familiar? How about coaches? If you have other children without LD or related issues, how do you talk to them?
The National Center For Learning Disabilities (www.ncld.org) gathered experts in the field of learning disabilities, parent contributors, parent advocates and authors—and came up with 17 conversation starters to help you “Start A Conversation About Learning Disabilities”.
