Dyslexia Awareness Month: WIN C-Pen Class Set

Dyslexia Awareness Month:  WIN C-Pen Class Set

October is International Dyslexia Awareness month and Dyslexia Canada is launching its second year of Mark It Read Campaign in support of those with a learning disability that makes it difficult for them to read, write and spell.  

This month buildings across Canada will light up red to show support for those living with dyslexia, and teachers and schools can get involved as well!

Plus Scanning Pens is showing its support with a contest. A Canadian classroom can win a class pack of Reader Pens by sharing a photo supporting the #MarkItRead campaign.


Buildings and monuments around Canada will light up red in support of dyslexia awareness

This month the CN Tower, BC Place, Winnipeg sign and more will light up red in support of dyslexia awareness.


For many students that struggle with studying and participating in class due to dyslexia, a C-Pen can be a lifesaver and the perfect tool both in- and outside the classroom.
