Teen Takes Up Dyslexia Awareness
Miss Door County’s Outstanding Teen, Claire Bohn, has partnered with the De Pere-based Bright Young Dyslexics to raise funds for youth with dyslexia. She chose dyslexia as her platform because the disorder runs in her family.
Bohn has been visiting classrooms to educate students about dyslexia and to raise awareness about the benefits of early diagnosis. Many students with the disorder experience anxiety and/or depression if it’s not caught and treated early.
Bright Young Dyslexics is allowing all donations raised in Door County to remain in the county to help pay for literacy services when insurance does not pay.
Tax-deductible donations are appreciated at brightyoungdyslexics.org, or send a check to BYD, 905 George St., #114, De Pere, WI 54115. Include the words “Door County” on checks or in the message field on the website to keep donation dollars in Door County.
