ODN will host several free sessions on dyslexia including a simulation on what it is like to be dyslexic and another on Dyslexia 101. The sessions are open to all and are free as part of Olentangy’s One Community diversity conference.
“We are thrilled to take part in this conference and to help get the word out about a reading difficulty that affects 1 in 5 people,” stated Carole Dorn-Bell, president of ODN. “The sessions that ODN is hosting are very insightful and engaging programs so without a doubt they will be crowd favorites.”
ODN’s sessions will be led by field professional Beth Reusser, a Certified Academic Language Therapist with Sensible Learning, LLC.
The diversity conference will be held on Saturday, September 6 from 8:30-3:30 at Olentangy Orange High School in Lewis Center. The conference is free and is open to parents and teachers. CEUs can be purchased for conference attendance.
