In this season of giving, your support for Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina (DDNC) will make a powerful difference for children, parents and teachers who need the meaningful assistance that we can provide.
Celebrating our new 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit status, DDNC is a grassroots movement driven by North Carolina families, educators and professionals concerned with limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia in North Carolina public schools.
Dyslexia is a language processing disorder that can hinder reading, writing, spelling and sometimes even speaking. It is a lifelong challenge that people are born with. Dyslexia is also very common, affecting 20 percent of the population and representing 80-90 percent of all those with learning disabilities.
(Sally Shaywitz, Overcoming Dyslexia)
Your support makes it possible for DDNC to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policymakers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.
Our goal is to raise $5000 by December 31, 2020.
Your gift will fund:
- Reading and tutoring resources for children, parents and teachers
- 501(c)(3) startup costs, such as strategic planning to reach more people
- Speakers for educational webinars and special events
- Legislation proposals, including mandatory teacher training, early screening tests for children and assistive technologies for public schools
During the pandemic, we are making sure students, teachers and parents have resources for remote learning and that parents understand their rights for IEPs that continue to meet established goals and provide the extra help dyslexic students need. We are also working with state and local legislators on issues needing urgent attention, such as Remote Learning Contingency Plans.
DDNC is a volunteer organization, run by an unpaid Board of Directors.
We’re working hard to provide children, parents and teachers with urgently needed resources, and gifts of any amount are needed and greatly appreciated.
