Our Story


  

    2010 my son was identified as dyslexic. My husband and I were at a complete loss.  Like many parents we started researching to gain a better understanding of dyslexia. This was the beginning of Dyslexia Advocacy Group of the Carolinas.  Since 2015 D.A.G. of the Carolinas has worked with school systems to develop programs and interventions for students with dyslexia. We’ve lobbied on behalf of families in the state of North Carolina for the passing of HB 149, which has resulted in North Carolina's first dyslexia law.  We have hosted awareness events at local libraries, schools, and universities in an effort to educate parents, guardians, and the community on dyslexia. We are the go to source for developing an effective IEP for students with dyslexia. 






The Dragonfly

    The dragonfly exhibits iridescence both on its wings as well as on its body. Iridescence is the property of an object to show itself in different colors depending on the angle and polarization of light falling on it.  This property is seen and believed as the end of one’s self created illusions and a clear vision into the realities of life. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity. This again indirectly means self discovery and removal of inhibitions.  

Dyslexia advocacy Group’s primary goal is the well being of our children. We want them to understand their many gifts and talents. By teaching them to embrace dyslexia we open the doors to self discovery as well as give them the life long gift of positive self awareness. 

 ADVOCATING

Dyslexia Advocacy Group of the Carolinas has worked tirelessly with families and educators to develop Individualized Education Plans(IEP) that include the appropriate remediation, accommodations, and realistic/measurable goals .  
It takes the team (parents,school, and advocate) working together to ensure the academic success of dyslexic students. All of the pieces must fit!
