October is Dyslexia Awareness Month
To raise awareness Square Pegs members will be sharing our stories.
It is important that children with dyslexia (and their parents) know that they are not alone. Sharing and listening to the stories of our members, we have discovered that there is more than one way to peel a potato - more than one way for a brain to be wired, more than one way to read a book, more than one way to show what you know) and it's great to learn from the experience of others.
While each story is unique, many children and have families have similar experiences trying to achieve understanding and action for their children. We hope these stories raise awareness of the challenges but also provide hope and inspiration!
And we'd love to hear your story!
