We alternate between discussions for 'new to dyslexia' and 'more veteran' parents; however, all parents are welcome to either talk.

    My Dyslexia SUCCESS Story

    Have you ever wondered what dyslexia means for your child's future? Has your child ever wondered if there are adults with dyslexia? Decoding Dyslexia MN has put together a virtual event for both parents and children with dyslexia. We have assembled a panel of dyslexic adults who are here to explain what their journey to adulthood looked like. This webinar will allow children to see how dyslexia plays into the successes of others and also to learn that there are others out there who struggled in the same areas as they do and realize that they are not alone on this journey. For parents, this webinar will provide insight into how dyslexia affected others as children and what helped them get through their struggles and highlight their successes.

    Color Me Mine

    Join your dyslexic friends for pottery painting and lunch from Subway! Only one parent per family may attend, as space is limited.

    About this Event

    Parent and child must each purchase a ticket to attend. One parent must attend per child/group of children. Lunch will be provided (no mask required) and then we will start painting (mask required.)

    NOTE: The ticket price does NOT include the purchase of the ceramic pieces. Ceramic pieces are chosen and purchased by YOU at Color Me Mine the day of the event.

    Color Me Mine offers 100’s of different pottery options for you to choose from. A Color Me Mine Team member will hand dip your painted pieces in a clear glaze and then kiln fire your pottery. Your works of art will be wrapped and ready for you to pick up 7 days later. Pieces are then food, dishwasher and microwave safe.

    PARENT TALK - New to the world of 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 required.
    Due to the discussion of minors, Decoding Dyslexia Minnesota prohibits video taping and the improper disclosure of personally identifiable information derived from the discussion
