Free Community Event for Families, Educators & Friends

How can teachers and parents motivate their students with learning challenges to read? Join us at our hands-on free family event, as part of Dyslexia Awareness Month, and try out the latest tools that are empowering students to read and focus.

Step inside a cozy SuperSensory Space, and try out an audio-visual library that makes books come alive for struggling readers!
