DDMN Parent Talk: New to Dyslexia
Has your child just been diagnosed with something that impacts 5-15% of the general population? Is the school not as helpful as you were hoping? Please join us for an informative and educational discussion on the topic of dyslexia and where to find resources to help our children. This is geared towards parents of children with a new dyslexia diagnosis, not intended for school administrators.
FREE to attend; registration is required.
Due to the discussion of minors, Decoding Dyslexia Minnesota prohibits videotaping and the improper disclosure of personally identifiable information derived from the discussion.
