In fact, only recently educators have truly understood how to support students with dyslexia and recognize their true strengths and gifts. Park Academy has been leading this initiative in Oregon for the past ten years, empowering students and their families. On June 16th, it’ll welcome some serious star power to help, at its second annual fundraising dinner. An Evening with Henry Winkler, at Park Academy (1915 South Shore Blvd. Lake Oswego) will include a dinner and oral auction; Mr. Winkler will share his personal experience with dyslexia and how he overcame his struggles to be an award winning actor, director, producer and author. Funds from the event will support the educational environment through its scholarship program and will help students who struggle with dyslexia and other attention learning issues to thrive.
