This hard-hitting PSA for the 1in5 Initiative has been making waves all over the country. Please pass it around to raise awareness of dyslexia and draw people to the Explore1in5.org website, where hope and resources abound.
dyslexia~(Greek origin) dys-not lexi-word~ difficulty with words
On that note, stay tuned for our 1-in-5 PSA campaign and website launch later this month… . !
Pass me the earbud, mate. Leslie (dyslexic) shows her friend NayNay how to use the Learning Ally Audio app for listening to audiobooks on her iPad. The app is free to Learning Ally members at the iTunes Store. These are real kids, not models, by the way. Real photographer too (thank you, Rick Reinhard).

Message from a reading specialist at Woodlynde School in Pennsylvania: “I’m a mom and I know that I don’t have a pause or stop button. Learning Ally gives kids control over what they’re reading, when they’re reading it, how to re-read or fast forward and skim through; it gives them more independence, and takes out the helplessness based on depending on someone, even if you care very, very much for them.”
