Tell the child how the information from part 1 connects to them...
“Remember that activity you did a few weeks ago when you had a special reading check? Well, that test was to see which way your brain reads - with the left side or the right side. We found out from that activity that your brain reads with the right side. That means that you are considered dyslexic and have a super creative, strong brain just like Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, and many other amazing, really smart people!"

...since the right side of your brain is naturally so strong and creative, it sometimes tries to use that creative side to read. That is why sometimes reading is difficult like when sometimes you add a sound to a word or you switch up letters - it is because the creative side of your brain is trying to figure out all the amazing options of what the word could be! To make it easier to read what the word actually does say, the left side of your brain needs to be trained and become stronger. This class teaches kids with dyslexia expert level reading lessons that train the brain to use more of the left side instead of the right side, so reading can be easier.
If a child is still confused or anything about the "why" for the class, you may compare it to when they see toddlers wearing a patch on their eye for a little while: to train their other eye to become stronger. This class is like that - you are training your left side of your brain to become stronger since your right side of your brain is so strong!
