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.
