Thank you to everyone that came out to learn more about dyslexia! The evening began with a special preview of “Dislecksia: The Movie,” created and produced by award-winning film-maker Harvey Hubbell. The movie told the funny, though sometimes heartbreaking, story of the life of a dyslexic child (Hubbell himself), his many challenges in surviving the school experience, and his ultimate discovery of the effective reading methodology which would change his life.
The Q&A panel discussion, wherein Mr. Hubbell and other panelists with varied expertise in the field of dyslexia addressed the questions of the audience. They discussed the current state of treatment, the needs of those struggling with dyslexia, and pending legislation which will attempt to meet those needs, and the diagnostic process. They also heard powerful testimonies from an SDF board member, who has dyslexia, and a high school junior, also with dyslexia.
We would like to extend a great thank you to the Education Department and Office of Student Accessibility at Old Dominion University. We would also like to thank our wonderful sponsors and students volunteers from the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association. If you were unable to attend or have any questions about the event please feel free to call us.
