As this year has brought the unimaginable for so many of us with the effects of a virus we could have only entertained in the movies, we are grateful to bring you an update on the work Celebrate Dyslexia has continued through the year.
We began 2020 with the promise of Beautiful Minds: Dyslexia and the Creative Advantage coming to the DoSeum October 2020. While it was slated to be in San Antonio through January 4, we were thrilled when the exhibition was extended through March 28, 2021. In addition to the incredible high-profile platform that the DoSeum has offered this conversation, they have continued to partner with us to offer professional development opportunities, parenting classes and community offerings to other groups who wanted to know more about dyslexia. We would love to see you and meet you at the exhibit! If you haven’t had a chance to go, we hope you add it to your plans in the coming weeks. The DoSeum has done an exceptional job of maintaining superb efforts in sanitizing and cleaning as well as keeping all attendees socially distant yet engaged.
Despite having our face to face meetings and scheduled trainings suddenly canceled due to the pandemic, we adjusted to our new normal and began a book club. In these few short months we have journeyed through the TEA Dyslexia Handbook, Overcoming Dyslexia 2nd Edition, and the Self-Driven Child. Although virtual, we had the absolute privilege to welcome Dr. Andrea Ogonosky, Dr. Sally Shaywitz, Dr. Bill Stixrud, and Ned Johnson into our conversations for additional questions answered. As a result, we also enjoyed partnering with City Education Partners, Jewish Family Services and Teachers Can.
While we look forward to announcing new work and opportunities for community engagement in our community to celebrate, educate and empower the 1 in 5 with dyslexia, we are so grateful you have joined us on this journey. As we finish this year, will you consider giving to Celebrate Dyslexia? As a 501c3 we are honored to serve our community. We look forward to hearing from you and joining you on your dyslexic journey.
