Alabama Game Changers seeks to build an awareness of specific learning disabilities among educators, physicians and the community.
Whether your diagnosis was obtained through our organization or someplace else, we want to help answer questions and support your child’s journey through the educational system.
Alabama Game Changers is actively engaged in many community organizations centered around childhood literacy. Starting out as original members of the “Voices for Dyslexia” Coalition, many of Alabama Game Changer’s core were part of this early group of dyslexia supporters that successfully pursued educational reform with regard to Dyslexia in our state.
