At 7:30 PM Wednesday, November 2, 2016 Linda Martin will give a lecture open to the public about Dyslexia at the Rome Historical Society, 200 Church Street, Rome, NY.
Dyslexia is a common learning disability that hinders the development of reading skills. Reading is not a natural act, it must be learned. Most dyslexic people have average IQs and many dyslexic people have been recognized with very high IQs.
What can society do to bring out the full potential of a dyslexic youth? Millions of school children with dyslexia endure frustration and demoralization on a daily basis as they struggle to acquire skills that many of us take for granted.
Linda Martin has a very challenging job, not only helping children, but in teaching and training teachers and other educators how to recognize and guide the dyslexic child. She is the Director of the Central NY 32nd Degree Masonic Learning Center For Children. Linda’s work, and the goals of the Masonic Learning Center will be covered in this very enlightening lecture. Linda is a certified trainer of tutors and advanced tutors. She is also certified as a trainer of trainers. The council in which she participates is called the International Multisensory Structure Language Education Council. The Masonic Center is in its 12th year of the program. They serve children throughout the north-central area of New York State.
An informal dinner will be held at the SAVOY in Rome on Wednesday, November 2nd 2016 at 5:30 p.m. Anyone interested in having dinner with our guest speaker and some Trustees, please contact us on or before Monday, October 31st.
