Will Marsh discovered that he was dyslexic in the third grade and decided shortly after that he wanted to make a difference in the lives of others living with dyslexia.

Marsh created a conference to raise awareness about dyslexia called Spotlight on Dyslexia. The conference is an impressive feat with keynote speaker Emerson Dickman, the past president of the IDA, a screening of the HBO documentary, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, a panel discussion of professionals, parents, and dyslexic students, and breakout sessions on key issues about dyslexia.

Marsh has also raised funds for a dyslexia walk, mentored other dyslexic students, and even testified in front of the New Jersey Senate Education Committee in support of laws regarding dyslexia. He was awarded the IDA Remy Johnson award for his community involvement and refusal to be limited by his learning differences.

Through his efforts, this impressive gentleman is hoping to give educators, parents, and students the resources they need to maximize learning for dyslexic students. He wants dyslexics to recognize their many strengths.
