Free Creative Learners Reading Fair aims to help students with learning disabilities

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Institute for Creative Learners and the Science Spectrum are teaming up for the second year to host the Creative Learners Reading Fair.

The Institute for Creative Learners has a mission of helping students learn, especially students who struggle to read, understand and succeed in a traditional learning atmosphere.

Creative Learners provides programs to help students learn in their own way and helps parents identify and intervene on their child's behalf.

On Saturday, October 7th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Science Spectrum, families can attend the free Creative Learners Reading Fair, which will highlight learning difficulties in young students while offering fun activities along with learning issues awareness.

There will be certified dyslexia therapists on hand to discuss problems, give "mini" assessments, and offer guidance on seeking solutions to suspected reading and learning problems.

Merinda Condra is the CEO of the Institute for Creative Learns and said this free day of reading, learning and dyslexia awareness will help shed a light on the problem of identifying learning disabilities and different learning styles.
