Description

Join us for Voice Advocacy Center’s 4th Annual Scholarship Luncheon!


We would love to see you there to support the work of Voice Advocacy Center, the Leader in Dyslexia Screening and Tutoring in the state of NE. We will honor and recognize the hard working students and the tutors who volunteer their time every week as well as some some special people who champion the cause to help children and teens to overcome the barriers of having dyslexia-the most common learning disability!

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Shawn Anthony Robinson

Dr. Shawn Anthony Robinson. Robinson is a doctor of philosophy, a senior researcher at Wisconsin’s Equity & Inclusion Laboratory with a goal to create more opportunities in education and employment for people who struggle to read, specifically focusing on African American boys and people with dyslexia."How do we not over identify students as being bad or emotionally disturbed or other categories when, in fact, they actually have a reading disability," said Robinson. "My mission in life is just to help kids, parents give them hope."

Robinson has also worked in the Wisconsin prison system and shared about the reading curriculum passed down from Dr. Nash that taught him how to read. He also visited the White House in 2015 to share about his research. He is the Author of Dr. Dyslexia Dude which was published in September of 2018.
