Just a quick announcement – I will be taking part in a panel discussion hosted by Deep Vellum on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 at 5 pm Central Time. The theme is “Dyslexia: Strategies for Inclusion”, and it is part of their “Accessibility in the Literary Arts” series. We are surrounded by the written word. Most of us think nothing of it. But for someone with dyslexia, this can present many difficulties in daily life. This panel discussion addresses the topic of making the world more inclusive for people with dyslexia.
Why is this a necessary topic for discussion?
Written text should be accessible for everyone! For individuals with dyslexia, in addition to literature, written tools like classwork, employee handbooks, and voting ballots can present challenges. Join Deep Vellum for a panel discussion about school, workplace, and literary strategies to help in making the world more inclusive for people with dyslexia.
Please join me, Don Winn (author of Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know and many books for young readers), along with Tiffany Sunday (author of How Dyslexics Will Rule the Future and Dyslexia’s Competitive Edge) and Jasmin Dean, MM (Executive Director, Celebrate Dyslexia) for an in-depth conversation about how to make a difference for people with dyslexia.
Over the next months, Deep Vellum is presenting “Accessibility in the Literary Arts,” an event series that will address vital questions about how to make the literary arts accessible and welcoming to people from all communities.
