City Hall To ‘Turn Red’ For Dyslexia Awareness

October 15, 2019 | 1 Comment

In the efforts to raise awareness about dyslexia, City Hall is turning red tonight [Oct 15] in support of Dyslexia Awareness Month.

A spokesperson said, “Tonight, City Hall is turning red in support of the 1 in 5 individuals with dyslexia. October is recognized as Dyslexia Awareness Month — individual recognition days are generally scattered throughout the month but the 15th is often selected as a direct reference back to the 1 in 5.

“Decoding Dyslexia BDA can be found on Facebook. Decoding Dyslexia BDA is a member of the US trademarked Decoding Dyslexia group originally formed in the US. There are currently 57 chapters — one in each US state, Canadian province and now Bermuda.

“The purpose of Decoding Dyslexia BDA, like all chapters, is to help raise awareness about dyslexia in the hopes to inform families, educators and policy makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.”

    Thank God! It has only taken 50 years for this to happen. Now we need kids to be screened on Primary school, and daily tutoring given. This extra help needs to continue into Middle school. Then we will have every one reading.
