Dyslexia Lecture Series Announced

The Washington Branch of the International Dyslexia Association (WABIDA) has announced its 2012-2013 lecture series, which kicks off Nov. 15 and runs through May 16.

All of the lectures run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Hamlin Robinson School, located at 1700 E. Union St. on Capitol Hill in Seattle. Clock hours are available. A $10 donation is requested for each lecture.
