The state of North Carolina has proclaimed October as Dyslexia Awareness Month!
Many cities and towns our proclaiming it too!
We would also like to thank all the dyslexia advocates out there that have pushed so hard and have asked their communities to join them in helping make others aware of dyslexia. One of our goals at Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina is to raise awareness about dyslexia and this is a great way to spread the word.
One of the goals of Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina is to raise awareness about dyslexia. Having your city proclaim October as “Dyslexia Awareness Month” is a great way to spread awareness. If your city has proclaimed October as Dyslexia Awareness month please send us the proclamation.
