About This Activity

Join Decoding Dyslexia-MO For A Picnic And Awareness Walk
Sponsored by Modern Woodmen

Come join Decoding Dyslexia Missouri, in Cape Girardeau, as we celebrate dyslexia awareness with our second annual Step Up for Dyslexia Walk.  The walk will begin with a picnic and take place in beautiful Capaha Park on Sunday, October 13rd, 2019. 

Decoding Dyslexia Missouri is a grassroots parent-led movement with a three-pronged mission to educate, advocate and legislate on behalf of those with dyslexia. We are focused on linking families to resources, support, and educational interventions for dyslexia. Our goal is to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Missouri.

With your support, this event will rally families, friends and supporters of DDMO as we work together to achieve our mission and create change for children and adults with dyslexia in our community. All proceeds will directly support DDMO’s mission.
