Teach My Kid to Read

albany, new-york, united-states

Our mission is to provide parents, caregivers, librarians, and anyone interested in literacy education with the tools to help all children, including those with dyslexia, learn to read. Teach My Kid to Read (TMKTR) initiated the first widespread movement to partner with libraries so librarians could become a better resource for families of early and striving readers, and libraries could offer more community solutions. TMKTR provides education about how we learn to read and where the different resources fit, helps with access to resources like decodable books, and organizes outreach events and experiences that educate the community about literacy.

Imagine flicking through a beautiful compilation of inspirational stories of coping with the struggles and hardships that learning difficulties bring. 
Now imagine doing so with the satisfaction of contributing to spreading awareness for learning difficulties.
Feels nice, doesn't it?
We at Dystinct, in partnership with Not-for-Profits working in the space of learning difficulties worldwide, present to you our limited edition coffee table book - Dystinct II.
This beautiful compilation is a labor of love, featuring the incredible journeys of everyday people with learning difficulties, evidence based content contributed by specialists from around the world and colourful illustrations created by children with learning difficulties.
The cover of Dystinct II is turquoise to commemorate Dystinct becoming a part of The International Council formed by The International Dyslexia Organization this year. The council is working towards a United Nations declaration of Dyslexia Day on October 8, and having the colour turquoise recognised as the colour to uniformly represent dyslexia around the world. The colour turquoise is known to have mostly positive connotations for people with dyslexia, as it promotes creativity, calm, serenity, tranquillity and relaxation according to colour psychology studies.
This is the second edition of our annual coffee table book. 
The book features some of the best content from the July 2021 to May 2022 digital magazine issues.
