Seeking a Girl Scout Silver Award Project, 13-year-old Sarah decided to create a group that could meet a need she has had most of her childhood - connecting with other children who are dyslexic. Knowing she was dyslexic since first grade, Sarah felt isolated, misunderstood and came to believe that her future was limited by her dyslexia. Teaming up with her mom (Jenny Zweber), Sarah started Dreaming Dyslexic in October 2019. She wants to prevent other dyslexic children from going through what she experienced.
Dreaming Dyslexic’s mission is to create a community of dyslexic children ages 6-14, led by dyslexic volunteers and their families. Our goal is to connect, inspire, and encourage dyslexic kids.
We CONNECT dyslexic kids with other kids just like them.
We INSPIRE kids by introducing them to dyslexic teens and adults who have used their dyslexia as a strength.
We encourage kids to DREAM big!
