North Peninsula Dyslexia Support Group

We are a group of parents and educators who get together monthly to offer support, share ideas and resources, and empower each other as we experience the successes and challenges of supporting children with dyslexia, and other processing or learning differences.  Typically, our meetings include a guest speaker, but sometimes we just talk and share ideas.

The group is parent moderated and free.  It is intended to be a safe place where parents can freely share what they are going through with others who understand.  Members who have managed similar challenges are able to offer insight, experience and support.

When: 2nd Monday of the month, September – May, 6:30-8:00 pm. (except the October 2021 meeting is on the 1st Monday)

Location: Meetings for the remainder of 2021 will be held on Zoom! RSVP to for the details on how to join the meeting.

We are excited to announce our meeting line up for 2021-22!
