Would you like your city to proclaim October as Dyslexia Awareness Month?

Last October, 13 cities and towns proclaimed
October as Dyslexia Awareness Month.

Dyslexia Awareness Month 2017

If you would like your city to join in, please contact your mayor and ask them to proclaim it this year. Here is a template letter Dyslexia Awareness Month 2018 to help guide you. These proclamations can be used as tools for awareness.  Many parents and teachers have shared them with their school Superintendent and school board. They have also been shared with local PTAs and been used in dyslexia awareness displays.
Be sure to email your city’s proclamation to when you receive it so we can post it.
