October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month. As many as 20 % of the student population in the U.S. are dyslexic. Dyslexia is a commonly misunderstood developmental reading disorder because it can be found in bright, highly intelligent, creative and innovative people.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 14, at 7:00 PM in the Community Room for a special screening of The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia.
