Have you or your child ever read a word and thought, “Well, English is just crazy, that is a word that just has to be memorized?” If you have, we have good news for you, English is not crazy and there is a way to investigate words along with your child or students (dyslexic and non-dyslexic) to learn the true underlying structure, and never utter those words again!

You are invited to attend a Community Literacy Program on Structure Word Inquiry featuring Dr. Kelli Sandman-Hurley and Tracy Block-Zaretsky on Saturday, September 26, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Glendora Public Library’s Bidwell Forum.  Dr. Sandman-Hurley is a published author and researcher of dyslexia and received her doctorate in Literacy with a specialization in reading and dyslexia from San Diego State University and the University of San Diego. Ms. Block-Zaretsky is a trained Special Education Advocate assisting parents and children through the Individual Education Plan (IEP) and 504Plan process and has tutored children and adults with learning disabilities for the past 18 years. Together, they formed the Dyslexia Training Institute in San Diego.

Presented jointly by the Glendora, Azusa, Covina and Monrovia Public Library Literacy programs, as well as Glendora Public Library Friends Foundation, this program is offered free to all community members, including teachers, parents, students and anyone interested in adult and family literacy.
