You live it daily. Share your story from your heart. Practice it with family members or a friend so that it might fit into a few minutes or on one page. That’s hard. Right? Fitting so much into so little time. Yes. It is, but we’re here to help show you how. Here’s an outline to help you get started to express your views in writing (sample letter Letter Template DDALA):

  • When were you/your child diagnosed?
  • Where do you live? Go to school?
  • Give a brief example of a time when dyslexia created difficulties, embarrassment, or hardship for you/your child in (1) school and (2) outside of school.
  • Give your “ask”. How can the proposed changes help your child’s education journey? Ask your school board member and Dr. Bice to make these changes a reality.
