11 year old Jaedyn is an avid user of Learning Ally, KC Johnston, her father states, “[Learning Ally] has been such a blessing and helps her manage her dyslexia.” KC is a professional audiobook narrator and dyslexic who recently produced a tik tok video with his daughter explaining to parents the beauty of having a neuro divergent child. They recorded the video in a way that compares her dyslexia to imperfect dice for dungeons and dragons.
Through the magic of social media, their video reached a custom dice maker that offered to make a set of dice for Jaedyn for free! She quickly responded that she recently purchased a new set of dice but is willing to have the new custom set sold and donate any proceeds to a charity that helps kids with dyslexia. This idea morphed into a Dyslexia Awareness Month fundraiser in support of educating, bringing awareness to and raising funds for students who learn differently.
Jaedyn selects Learning Ally as the beneficiary of her Dyslexia Awareness Month fundraiser!
So far KC Johnston and Jaedyn have partnered with 35+ dice makers who are donating their wares in support of building awareness for students who learn differently. KC Johnston and one of the dice makers are going to match the donations/auction proceeds of up to $500.00 each and he is paying for auction item shipping costs.
