October is Dyslexia Awareness Month. We are encouraged to have received an official proclamation signed by Governor Mary Fallen in support of our efforts to raise awareness for dyslexia in the state of Oklahoma.
We believe real change happens in small daily actions of our families raising awareness for dyslexia in their communities. A few ways you can help support dyslexia awareness in OK as you work to raise awareness in your communities are as follows:
Watch for the DDOK billboard along the roads in OK, share with us when and where you’ve spotted the billboard.
Listen for the DDOK public service announcement on radio stations throughout OK, share with us when and what station you heard the PSA.
Visit your local library; do you see the DDOK poster? Do you see a set of books displayed for Dyslexia Awareness Month? If not, will you follow up with a conversation with the librarian about Dyslexia Awareness Month?
Dance to raise awareness for dyslexia through D.A.N.C.E., a facebook initiative.
We have many more events happening throughout the month of October. Visit our Decoding Dyslexia OK facebook page daily to get more information and our Events Page for current calendar to learn how you can support dyslexia in OK in the month of October.
As we create a collective voice in Oklahoma we will improve awareness and educational resources for students with dyslexia. Together we are making a difference!
