An amazing Dyslexia Showcase in Atlanta!

Wow! What a night.  We couldn’t have wished for a better way to launch our Dyslexia Showcases in partnership with Microsoft.  We had a packed room at The Schenck School in Atlanta, Georgia full of educators, school administrators, dyslexia advocates, parents and many successful dyslexics.

A panel of Dyslexia expert teachers from Schenck School and Atlanta Elementary schools Morningside and Thomasville/Purposebuilt, all shared their views on how we enable ALL dyslexic children to succeed.  There was such a sense of positive energy and movement for change…and it was all broadcast on Facebook live so please check it out here


The showcase was hosted by the wonderful Robyn Curnow, News Anchor at CNN who spoke openly for the first time about her dyslexia.  We have an interview with her coming up soon!


Beth Watson and Mike Tholfsen from MicrosoftEdu spoke and presented at the event, explaining their partnership with us, and the work they’re doing to provide free support for educators and dyslexics.

The overriding take-away from the event was how really important it is for teachers and parents to understand dyslexia properly and get the right support.  And that’s exactly why we’re working with expert educators across the world, and in partnership with Microsoft to create FREE online Dyslexia Training for teachers, and parents.  In January we launched our first 5 Dyslexia Awareness Modules and already 75,000+ teachers have done training! We have more modules coming up later this year and next.


A panel of successful dyslexics from Atlanta (Mike Altman, Richard Courts IV and Dr James Calleroz White) all joined Robyn to share their fascinating stories and very humorous insight!  They discussed the EY Value of Dyslexia report and all of the panel agreed that they focus on their dyslexic strengths meaning that dyslexia has definitely helped them to succeed.


We are so excited for the next Dyslexia Showcase which will be held at Millfield School in UK on 6th of June.  We’ll be rolling our Dyslexia Showcases out around the world…so if you’re a school that excels in supporting dyslexic students and would like to partner with us on an event…we’d love to hear from you.
