Wolff Family Run 4 Dyslexia
Welcome to Our TeamQuest Page!
As most of you know Lilly was diagnosed with dyslexia in 2nd grade. What is not understood is the meaning... the majority of people believe its seeing letters backwards. In fact dyslexia is a language based reading disorder where interpreting letters and words and reading are very difficult. She must be explicitly taught, unfortunately our school system does not know how to effectively remediate these 1 in 5 students with dyslexia.
In an effort to raise awareness and raise funds to help train a teacher we are running a 1/2 marathon! We are fundraising for the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) to help create a better future for every child and adult who struggles with dyslexia and other reading difficulties…because reading changes lives!
IDA focuses on educating parents, teachers and professionals about dyslexia, assuring that structured literacy is embedded in educator training and providing the opportunity for all people to learn to read.
The goal is for children to realize their full potential and advance the IDA quest by responding immediately to teachers and parents at their point of need with information or referral to available and accessible resources.
Please consider donating...together we can create a world where everyone can read!
