Camp Starlight is a one-week overnight camp specifically for children with dyslexia, run by the Michigan Dyslexia Institute. We are so happy that two kids in our Dyslexia Buddy Network attended Camp Starlight. (photos below)











Bike Riding for Kids with Dyslexia


Dyslexia can make learning to ride a bike especially difficult. Our group attended the REI store's "How to Ride a Bike" class at the recommendation of one of the moms in DBN, and it was a success! We highly recommend REI's class.
