Free dyslexia conference open to all

A free dyslexia seminar, featuring lead dyslexia expert Susan Barton, will be open to educators, parents and the public on Oct. 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. in Bangor.

Find out why bright children struggle first with spelling, then with written expression and eventually hit a wall in reading development by third grade—if not sooner. Barton will share the causes and warning signs of dyslexia as well as the classroom accommodations and effective tutoring methods needed for students to succeed.

Attendees will learn:

  • 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 do not qualify for special education
  • Research-based best practices to improve spelling, reading and writing
  • Why tutoring alone is not enough

This event is sponsored by Project D.E.B.U.N.K.—Dyslexia Educational Bandwagon, Uniting Noteworthy Kids.
