How Does Dyslexia Make You A Better Poet

The DoSeum is a place where interactive fun and hands-on learning come together—a place where minds are always at play.  During your visit, our exhibits, programs, and classes will encourage young minds to explore the joy of learning through connections to STEM, the arts, and literacy, but curiosity and exploration don't have to end when you leave!

Explore our DIY Activities, Storytimes, and Questions from Kids that were created for you to DO at home and stay connected with your family while keeping minds at play in between your visits!

To learn more about how you can help support your DoSeum, especially during these unprecedented times, please visit our SUPPORT page.



How Does Dyslexia Make You A Better Poet

Dyslexia affects as much as 20% of the world’s population. Although Dyslexia is labeled as a learning disability, it can be seen as a different way of thinking and providing creative advantages.  For this Ask A DOer, we feature special guest, LeDerick Horne, a performance poet, a national advocate for people living with learning disabilities, and our 2020 Outside The Lunchbox Luncheon @Home keynote speaker!  His question comes from Morgan, who wants to know: “How Does Dyslexia Make You A Better Poet”?  Join us as LeDerick explores how Dyslexia has made him a better poet.   

To learn more about LeDerick or to purchase tickets for this year’s Outside The Lunchbox Luncheon @Home on October 6th, visit the Outside The Lunchbox page.
