Outreach Events

The Reading Center hosts outreach events throughout the state every year. Last year, we reached more than 5,000 people, many of whom were new to dyslexia and The Reading Center. If you are interested in having one of our staff speak or participate in your event, please contact us at 507-288-5271.

Each fall The Reading Center hosts a series of outreach events on the topic of dyslexia. Events have included Adults with Dyslexia panels, Legislative laws Panels, Simulations and Open Houses.
