Join us in Columbus for
Dyslexia Awareness Day Rally!
Next Wednesday, three Ohio Branches of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) are hosting a rally to raise public awareness about dyslexia and spur legislation that will serve and protect dyslexic children in Ohio. Come and join us at the State House in Columbus, where an array of speakers will sound the call for supportive policies on behalf of thousands of citizens with this "invisible learning difference."
You'll also listen in on powerful testimonials from people with dyslexia, enjoy original artwork and poetry, hear a music performance by Kelly Fine & Company (a dyslexic college student band), watch a dyslexia simulation, and much more!
Special note: Janet Milkovich, Vice President of Public Policy and Advocacy at RFB&D, Recording For the Blind & Dyslexic, will speak at the rally. Be sure to look for Janet between 10:30 and 11:30 near the podium at the stairs of the State House South Lawn; introduce yourself, take photos and submit stories that we can share with the wider RFB&D community nationwide.
View the Event Poster Online from COBIDA.
Email Janet Milkovich or call (312) 660-1982
Call or email your State Representatives to let them know that you support dyslexia legislation in OH.
Rep. Ted Celeste: (614) 644-6005 firstname.lastname@example.org
Rep. William Batchelder: (614) 466-8140 email@example.com
We look forward to meeting you in Columbus for a great show of solidarity between RFB&D, the Ohio Branches of IDA, as well as dyslexics, their families, and special educators from all over the state.

Dyslexia's Inheritance patterns and the genetic link
The symptoms of mild dyslexia in adults
The classic warning signs in children
Why most dyslexic children don't qualify for special ed
Research-based "best practices" to improve spelling, reading, and writing
Why tutoring alone is not enough -- and much more!!!
Who should attend?
parents who are trying to determine if dyslexia is their child's issue, or who know it is and need to understand all the areas that it will impact, including math and memorization
teachers who don't understand why children who can't master spelling and struggle with reading don't qualify for special education services
reading specialists who need to know how to informally identify which of their struggling readers may have dyslexia -- and what to do to help them
principals who want to start early intervention programs to achieve the goal of No Child Left Behind -- that every student is reading at grade level by the end of third grade
resource specialists who need to know how to close the gap for students who have a learning disability
school psychologists who want to learn to distinguish dyslexia from other learning disabilities
speech language therapists who are often the first specialists to work with dyslexic children because of their difficulty articulating R's and L's, M's and N's, and S, SH and CH
pediatricians who are often asked by parents to test their children for dyslexia
counselors and psychologists who often deal with the lifelong emotional damage that undetected dyslexia and academic failure causes
Susan Barton is trained in seven different Orton-Gillingham-based programs and teaches several graduate-level courses through the University of San Diego.
