DDMO Educational Events

We have events to help. Decoding Dyslexia-MO hosts events across the State. If you have questions about why your child struggles to read or if you need help understanding your child’s evaluation, check our list of upcoming events.

Decoding Dyslexia-MO Roundtables
Do you know a bright child who struggles to read or write? Are you having trouble navigating the special education process, but don’t know where to turn?  Research shows that 1 out of 5 students struggle with reading and spelling.  You are not alone.  Come meet us for a casual morning or evening of support and discussion.  You will learn more about the Decoding Dyslexia movement and have a chance to meet with other parents of children with dyslexia.
