Overcoming the Confusion of Dyslexia

A free presentation by Ann Farris, author of The Other Side of Dyslexia

Saturday, June 5, 2010, 2-4 pm
HANDLE By the Bay, 414 – 33rd Avenue, San Francisco

Learn practical tips on what you can do to facilitate your child’s performance and reading comprehension skills, or your own.

Ann Farris learned she was dyslexic as an adult, and was told there was little she could do. She refused to accept this “life sentence” to dysfunction and confusion. You can too.

Ann will explain in her presentation how overcoming the confusion of dyslexia took her on physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual paths, and she will discuss how she improved her reading comprehension from Grade 3 level to high school level. Her book, The Other Side of Dyslexia, describes her experience of what it feels like to be dyslexic. Her DVD, Dyslexia, Taking Control of Your Confusion offers tools to address the condition.

Ann Farris had a successful career in the performing arts. She was Director of the Opera\Musical Theater Program at the National Endowment for the Arts when she found out she was dyslexic.
