NEW HARTFORD- The Children’s Dyslexia Center of Central New York took their awareness to a whole new level. On Friday, tutors from the organization hosted an informational session at Sangertown Mall, about the learning disability and how it can effect students.

Tutors had participants cover their hand while looking through a mirror and then attempt to draw in between two lines. The simulation helps to put into perspective the daily life of someone who is living with this disability.

“For some people letters and words seem to move around on the page,” said Linda Martin, Director of the CNY Dyslexia Center. “This hampers their ability to read.”

According to Martin this learning disability can be detected as early as three or four years old.

“There are a lot of clues, children may have trouble learning the alphabet, learning directions, or rhyming,” said Martin.

If you’re interested in learning more on this or would like onsite tutoring you can contact the Children’s Dyslexia Center at (315)-736-0574.
