Upcoming Creative Learners Reading Fair at the Science Spectrum
Wednesday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, Merinda Condra,the CEO of the Elementary School for Education Innovation, joined Dave and Matt to talk about the upcoming Creative Learners Reading Fair at the Science Spectrum.
This weekend, on October 6th from 10 am - 2 pm, the science Spectrum will be holding their annual Creative Learners Reading Fair. Condra explained that they will have several important and fun activities, not the least of which is the free dyslexia screening. The screening is free and intended for all children in kindergarten through third grade. Merinda explained that kids with dyslexia are usually very smart, but often struggle with reading and similar activities, and that most kids with dyslexia are not diagnosed. The point of the screening is to find out if additional testing is warranted by the children's schools so the kids can get the help they need.
In addition to the screening, the science spectrum will be free for kids ages 12 and under with a paying adult, and they will have about 10-15 different community organizations there to talk about what services that they offer for kids. They will also have princesses and Spiderman there to read to kids, and more.
