Today kicks off Dyslexia Awareness month. If you happen to be in Denver today, go see the Denver City and County building lit up in Red for the celebration.

At VSA we celebrate Dyslexia every month because our children are amazing! We do what we do because everyone deserves to learn to read and all dyslexic minds are unique and special.

During the month of October your children will be learning about how wonderful their dyslexic brain is by learning in morning meeting what their Dyslexic brains are capable of. Teachers will share information about other famous Dyslexics from a book called “Brilliantly Dyslexic”. #vsarocks #untileveryonecanread #readingisfundamental

Ms Christine has been using the Ozobot robots in science class and tutoring! The upper middle schoolers have been studying animal cells and drew a cell for the Ozobot to trace to learn the parts. Some of Ms Christine’s tutor kids have been using them to learn to blend words too! #vsarocks #ozobotsintheclassroom #ozobot #dyslexicslearningwithhandsontechniques ... See MoreSee Less

Our friend Garett Bolles @gbolles72 of the Denver Broncos is dropping his 2nd t-shirt for his foundation GB3. His message is so awesome and shows how he cares for kids with learning disabilities like ours who attend VSA. He has visited our school several times and talked to the kids about how he found support and how he learned to use his learning and attention issues to his advantage. Proceeds from tshirt sales will go to support his foundation, and he has named us as a group he is supporting! Link to his foundation page in our bio for Instagram Each new design for t-shirts are only available for a short time so if you like a design be sure to get one! You can also get all of the designs by purchasing them at once from his foundation.
