Join Us For Our October Workshops
Dyslexia is a Superpower
Featuring Gibby Booth
Dyslexic Entrepreneur, Speaker & Author
Wednesday, October 17 | 7-9pm
130 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA
Join us for a fun, interactive evening where we will explore the positives dyslexia has to offer. Gibby will tell her personal dyslexic story and explain how she went from being embarrassed by and despising her dyslexia, to eventually accepting it, to now calling it her superpower. Throughout the evening Gibby will offer advice and tidbits for how to navigate your child’s dyslexia in the least stressful way possible.
Workshop participants will learn how to:
- How society’s (incorrect) view of dyslexia is likely affecting your child and what to do about it
- Suggestions for motivating and encouraging your child
- The importance of focusing on building your child’s confidence and some ways to do that
