Dyslexic Kids Connect” provides opportunities for youth, ages 8-18, to get together, have fun, and learn more about their learning difference. It’s finding a place where they can speak freely and connect with others who have similar experiences. It’s a sense of “belonging” that can lead toward building self-esteem, and building that self-esteem can lead to success in school and life.
