Dyslexia Awareness | The Written Word

Fall Newsletter

We are celebrating dyslexia strengths by featuring our students’ creative t-shirt and poster designs. All proceeds from the sales of these items will benefit a local dyslexia organization.

Also, we are excited that the Wheaton Public Library and Winfield Public Library have book displays featuring donated books from The Written Word.

What is Dyslexia?

Follow Louie’s Travels in October

Visit our local library

We donated books about dyslexia and learning to our local public libraries in Winfield and Wheaton. We would like to thank these libraries for their willingness and excitement to create book displays. If you are a student, parent, or educator please visit and check out a book about dyslexia and the science of reading.

Nessy wants to help!

Nessy | Free Resources

“15-20% of the world’s children are dyslexic, yet most teachers haven’t been trained to identify, support, or effectively teach dyslexic kids to read. Teachers want to reach all the children in their care, but many just don’t know how.” (Nessy)


Help us raise money!

During Dyslexia Awareness Month in October, all proceeds from the sales of t-shirts, posters, and wristbands will be donated to the DYSLEXIA ACTION GROUP OF NAPERVILLE
