PETAL, MS (WDAM) - This is a guest viewpoint from Shelley Brown
Most people know me as Sell of Shelley but today I am speaking as Shelley Brown, mother of a Dyslexic child. Dyslexia is a disability that one in five people are born with. The most prominent sign of dyslexia is the difficulty in learning to read. For grade school children, this can lead to low self esteem, poor grades and a general disinterest in school.
Dyslexia cannot be cured but it can be managed and that is why the Dynamic Dyslexia Design School or 3D school in Petal is so important for children struggling with Dyslexia. The school not only evaluates children for Dyslexia but it is also a school for children grades 2nd through 5th. The 3D school operates at a loss every year and fundraising is a critical part of the school in order for them to continue to provide their services.
One of the primary annual fundraiser is the 5k run and 1 mile fun walk on April 11th at 9am at the William Carey Campus. Come out and run or just make a donation so this unique and wonderful school can continue to evaluate, promote and educate their wonderful students.
