About This Activity

Join Decoding Dyslexia-MO For A Picnic And Family Festival
Sponsored by Springfield Center for Dyslexia and Learning

Come join Decoding Dyslexia Missouri (DDMO), in Springfield as we celebrate dyslexia awareness with our annual Step Up for Dyslexia event sponsored by Springfield Center for Dyslexia and Learning. The event will begin with a picnic and take place in beautiful Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park on Sunday, October 13, 2019.  Various sponsor tables will be set up with information about dyslexia, as well as activities for the kids and fun events for families. We will have some welcome announcements along with a short meet and greet period where you can ask questions of local Certified Academic Language Therapists and find out more information about dyslexia.  Afterward, please enjoy unlimited access to the corn maze, fire pit, animal exhibits and use your 5 attraction tickets included with each paid registration on any of the Fall Festival activities listed here

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.
