2017 Dyslexia Day

Join us for the Annual Dyslexia Day on the Hill Rally. Each year families and professionals from around the state gather at the Capitol to raise awareness about dyslexia and support legislative change for students with dyslexia. The Rally is a time for us to gather in the Rotunda to share stories with each other, and with Senators and Representatives.  Please RSVP at the bottom of the page.

Schedule for the event: 

9:30-10:00 Sign In - Rotunda 
10:00-11:00 Speakers in the Rotunda  
11:00-11:30 Network with families - Rotunda 
11:30-1:30 Meet with Legislators 
 1:30-2:00 Wrap-up - Rotunda

Bring a poster:

Please consider bringing a poster with a slogan to show your support. Examples include #SayDyslexia; Childhood Has No Rewind - Start Seeing Dyslexia; Equitable Education for ALL; or Dyslexia: Solutions for Struggling Reader.

Children involvement:

Any child interested in speaking will be welcome to the podium. We would like children to bring an index card or half sheet with their answer to a question such as: What do you wish your teacher knew about dyslexia? What was it like in school before finding out you had dyslexia?

Meet with your Legislators and ask their support of bill SF0453/HF0668:

We highly encourage you to set up a meeting with your Legislators.  They have mentioned their desire to hear from families in their district!  See our website for more information. You can find your MN Senator and MN House Member at http://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts/.
