Outreach events provide opportunities for individuals to connect in person with parents, educators, and others interested in learning and engaging in discussions about dyslexia and related topics.
We and our partners are eager to bring events to as many areas as possible throughout the state and appreciate assistance from volunteers who can help find meeting spaces such as at public libraries or schools. If you are interested in having an outreach meeting in your area, please fill out the Request for Outreach form.
For parents and teachers who are not able to attend outreach events, free webinars now exist that provide wonderful learning opportunities for professionals, parents, and advocates.
