Dyslexia Day 2022 Video
Decoding Dyslexia Georgia brought together author Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Cameron Mattingly, and Cindy Lumpkin to discuss Kelli’s book The Adult Side of Dyslexia. The discussion centers around adult dyslexia, how early childhood educational situations have long-term impacts on a person’s life, and how adding the voices of adults with dyslexia to all conversations about dyslexia is a critical, but often missing piece.
