Two students from Allied Services dePaul School for Children with Dyslexia were among the 40 winners in Holiday Poster Contest sponsored by The Lackawanna Susquehanna County Office of Drug and Alcohol Programs, in which over 16,000 students submitted entries.

Joy Golden, third grade, and Katie Kobierecki, first grade were among those students recognized with certificates of achievement.

Teachers at dePaul are aware that compared to the average student, a child with dyslexia generally has very strong visual skills, a vivid imagination, and a greater appreciation for color, tone, and texture, as well as above average intelligence, so expressing their creativity through art is encouraged.

The list of famous artists believed to have been dyslexic includes: Leonardo da Vinci, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Chuck Close, August Rodin, Andy Warhol, and Robert Rauschenberg.
