THE STORY:

kerry Yonushonis wrote -

Between May 19 – 21, 2017, weather dependent, a team of student swimmers will attempt a historic open water swim by swimming the length of Galveston Island in the Gulf of Mexico. The distance is approximately 30 miles, with each swimmer completing a portion of the swim in a rotating relay format.

All of the swimmers have dyslexia or have a family member / friend with dyslexia they are supporting.  In addition, this event is being organized by Marathon Open Water Swimmer and Stellar Dyslexic, Kerry Yonushonis, along with her Business Partner and Stellar Mother of a Dyslexic, Courtney Turpin.

Each team member will raise funds for NoticeAbility, a non-profit dedicated to helping students with dyslexia identify their unique strengths and build their self-esteem. They incorporate the neuroscience of dyslexia, the best practices of special education, and the technology of Silicon Valley to construct learning curricula and teacher training programs for global distribution.

ABOUT NOTICEABILITY: NoticeAbility is a nonprofit organization that designs and delivers proprietary curricula to students with dyslexia. Grounded in social-emotional learning research, executive function methodology and project management techniques, NoticeAbility offers authentic inquiry experiences in vocational subjects that cater to the neurological strengths of the dyslexic mind: entrepreneurship, engineering, architecture and narrative storytelling (film, literature and stage).

Your donation helps NoticeAbility create curriculum for and by dyslexics.
