Senior Recognized for Dyslexia Advocacy
Senior Jenna Benedict participated in Dyslexia Day February 25 at the Georgia State Capitol. She was invited into the Senate Chambers by Education Chairman P.K. Martin for her advocacy for Dyslexia. Jenna's Dyslexia was not detected until 4th grade but she persevered and will graduate in the spring and has been awarded academic scholarships to attend college in the fall.
Dyslexia Day at the Capitol was sponsored by Decoding Dyslexia GA—a network of parent-led grassroots movements across the country concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within the public education system. Decoding Dyslexia aims to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate, and support students with dyslexia.
