Our Church Opens Minds through awareness about the variety of disabilities that affect people every day.  There is no us and them when it comes to disabilities.   All people are differently-abled and all people will experience some disability, at least once in life. A parish Opens Minds whenever it takes concrete steps to exercise God's compassion for people who are differently-abled physically, mentally or emotionally.  


Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability.  Dyslexia refers to a cluster of symptoms, which result in people having difficulties with specific language skills, particularly reading.  People with dyslexia usually experience difficulties with other language skills such as spelling, writing, and pronouncing words.  Please consider the tools and resources provided here for those with Dyslexia and refer to links for other specific disabilities on the left sidebar.
