Our foundation participates in a number of activities to help those who suffer from dyslexia as well as their loved ones. Dyslexia can be extremely crippling, especially for those who have jobs requiring them to do extensive reading and writing. However, with increased awareness and access to treatment, it can be managed effectively so that dyslexics can use their talents to achieve their goals. Here are some of the activities we focus on.
Fundraising for treatment and research
We frequently launch fundraising initiatives aimed at raising money for dyslexia treatment and research. We do this by organizing community events such as races, parties, and shows, where all of the proceeds are donated to organizations that promote important medical research for dyslexics. We hope that in the near future, dyslexia will be something that can be effectively treated with medication from a young age.
Many people aren’t aware of what dyslexia is, or if they are, they have many misconceptions about it. One of our biggest projects is to educate the general public about dyslexia and how they can help. We do this through online and print campaigns, as well as through all of our events and community sponsorships. We want to help dyslexics feel more comfortable in the world around them, and one of the best ways to do that is to make sure that others in their life know how to handle it.
Resources for dyslexics
We offer a wide range of resources for those who are suffering from dyslexia. We can help dyslexics find the appropriate treatment and coping strategies, particularly if they are in high pressure work or school situations. We also are able to work with the family members, friends, coworkers, and teachers of dyslexics to educate them on how they can help dyslexics feel more comfortable in their environments. Finally, we are able to help dyslexics get access to therapy to deal with the emotional stresses of this disease.
We hope that through our activities, dyslexics will be able to live more comfortably and attack their goals with confidence. Just because you suffer from dyslexia doesn’t mean that you are unintelligent – in fact, dyslexics are often some of the smartest or most talented people in their fields. By encouraging more acceptance of dyslexics throughout our society, we can take full advantage of their talents and unique qualities. We encourage you to get involved with our activities if this is an important cause for you.
