CALLING PARENTS OF STRUGGLING READERS

A message from Decoding Dyslexia

Do you have a child who is or was behind in reading? We want to hear about it. Our parent advocacy group, Decoding Dyslexia, has designed a short survey to learn more about how MCPS identifies and screens struggling readers.

We are bringing the voices of struggling readers together in a movie called "In My Words! We want to put the stories of struggling readers and dyslexic readers. We are asking students to video themselves answering a few questions, upload the video, and an editor will put it together in a short movie. The instructions for participating in "In My Words!" is here.

Join us for our

next monthly meeting on April 11th at 7:00 p.m. at the Siena School, 1300 Forest Glen Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20901 We'll have a presentation and discussion on "The Middle Years (grades 5-8)" - navigating with a struggling reader or dyslexic student.
