Masquerade for Dyslexia Gala
COE faculty and staff attended the 2017 Masquerade for Dyslexia Gala to support the Arizona Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, a GCU educational partner. Approximately $50,000 was raised to provide scholarships to teachers and parents for training on dyslexia. Rebekah Dyer, President of the Association, said 1 in 5 individuals have dyslexia or struggle with a learning disability, therefore it is important for teachers and parents to receive training specific to working with students with dyslexia.
