October is International Dyslexia Awareness Month
October is International Dyslexia Awareness Month. By taking our dyslexia awareness quiz, you help us to better inform others to understand dyslexia and to advocate for the importance of getting students the support and services they need to thrive in school.

At Learning Ally, we are proud to serve students with dyslexia—to see them transform from struggling readers to successful scholars. I know helping students who are blind, visually impaired or have a reading based learning difference like dyslexia matters to you—I’ve seen your generous support as a member of the Learning Ally community. So today I invite you to engage more deeply with our work by taking our short quiz! Take the quiz to deepen your understanding of dyslexia and the people it affects—and help spread awareness by sharing the quiz with your family and friends on your social media channels.

Did you know that Learning Ally provides tools and services for students with dyslexia that include:
  • Assistive technology, including our always-expanding audiobook library and the student-centric tools on our reading app
  • Teacher resources, including classroom launch plans, data dashboards, progress-monitoring tools, and more.
  • Community groups for students and parents

Last but certainly not least, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Learning Ally parents and teachers working hard each day to ensure that our students overcome barriers to learning. You are helping them soar!
