Dyslexia Buddy Network
Connect. Empower. Inspire.
That’s what we do! Our mission is to provide a community for our kids with dyslexia, so they know they aren’t alone. DBN has over 70 youth from elementary through high school across Illinois. We have inspiring speakers, fun social events and a summer overnight camp.
2016 All-Star Summer Camp Registration: You’re in the right place! Submit your registration fees of $215 per camper by using the fields to the left. We will know that your payment is for camp registration. There is a 3.9% credit card processing fee. For one camper, choose $223.34, for 2 campers choose $446.77. To avoid paying any processing fee, send your payment via PayPal from your bank (not debit or credit card) to DyslexiaBuddyNetwork@gmail.com.
Or, use this page to make a general donation. 100% of your donation will be used toward:
- Award of Excellence ribbons, given to recognize our youth’s hard work and also given to speakers. (All speakers are dyslexic.)
- The DBN Card Program. Printing and postage for custom cards mailed to our youth to provide encouragement and recognition. (We use VistaPrint to keep costs low.)
- Event-related costs, such as room rental fees
- Small gifts for speakers (for example, gift cards or photo booklet of the event)
- Web site fees
Ben Foss, author of The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan, wrote “It’s heartbreaking to see your child feel unworthy. The best way to address this feeling is to find a community for him or her. One of my strongest recommendations in this book is to go find other people that share your child’s experience.”
