Education Group To Screen Acclaimed Movie On Dyslexia
C.H.I.L.D, the Verona non-profit that advocates for children with learning issues, and Verona Schoolsʼ Special Services Department are sponsoring a screening of an important movie on dyslexia on Thursday, March 13.
“The Big Picture”, which was created in conjunction with the Yale Center for Dyslexia, provides insight into the mysteries, difficulties and gifts of dyslexia. After the showing, there will be a question and answer session with a panel of Verona teachers, as well as students, ranging from grades 5 through 11, who will share their personal experience discovering their strengths in the midst of their struggles with this hidden disability. Speech and language expert, Jeanne Tighe, CCC-PLC, of Beyond Communication LLC, will moderate the panel.
This will be an opportunity for teachers, parents and students to learn more about dyslexia, and educators will receive professional development credit hours for this valuable workshop.
Refreshments will be provided, courtesy of the Junior Womanʼs Club of Verona. I AM Possible Dyslexia
Awareness bracelets will be available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to C.H.I.L.D. In addition, representatives from Learning Ally—a provider of audio books making reading accessible for all—will be on site.
The event will be held on Thursday, March 13, and the snow date, if needed, will be the following Thursday, March 20. It will be at F.N. Brown Elementary School auditorium, 125 Grove Avenue, in Verona. Registration opens at 6:30 p.m. and the movie screening starts at 7 p.m. The question and answer panel of students and teachers starts at 8 p.m.
