2015 Dyslexia Conference

It's been my privilege to serve on the board for the Southwest Branch of the International Dyslexia Association for the past three years. One of the biggest highlights every year is being part of the Dyslexia Conference in February. This year I had the honor of serving on a Friday night panel I organized called The Reading Fire - Kindling a Love for Books. Participants included Teri Lesesne, Professor of Library Science and three authors with a special connection to dyslexia: myself, Caroline Starr Rose, and Kersten Hamilton.

The highlight of the evening was an introduction by Miss Teen New Mexico who discussed her own experiences as a teenager with dyslexia. To read more about the conference visit Southwest IDA.
