Dyslexia: Strategies for Inclusion | Accessibility in the Literary Arts Virtual Series

August 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

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 ensure a more inclusive place for individuals with dyslexia.

Panelists: Don Winn (author of Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know and many books for young readers), Tiffany Sunday (author of How Dyslexics Will Rule the Future and Dyslexia’s Competitive Edge), and Jasmin Dean, MM (Executive Director, Celebrate Dyslexia)

Over the next months, we’re 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.
