Dyslexia Awareness Rally in OH

Join us in Columbus for

Dyslexia Awareness Day Rally!

What: 2nd Annual Dyslexia Awareness Day Rally

When: Wednesday, October 6, 2010; 10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Where: State House South Lawn, Columbus, Ohio

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.

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.
