We are concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within our public schools and communities. This page is a place to find resources, network with others in your area and strategize on how to best affect public policy in support of individuals with dyslexia. Help us spread the word!
Our group is made up of parents of children who are dyslexic. We are not experts, nor are we a business or educational organization. We can only offer you the benefit of our collective experiences. We encourage parents to meet with their local policy-makers to tell the story of their child, and ask for legislation to identify and support dyslexic children in our public schools.
What We Do1
We provide support to parents as they try to seek help for their child. We share our experiences of getting help for our own children to help parents navigate a road with many paths and new lingo.
We want all teachers to know the signs of Dyslexia. Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 students. That means every teacher in every classroom has a student with dyslexia. Providing students with reading instruction utilizing a structured literacy approach can allow students with dyslexia learn to read.
We advocate for students with dyslexia at the local, state, and federal level. We review existing and proposed legislation to insure that students with dyslexia receive the help they need. Each year we host a Day at the Capitol to share the stories of parent, educators and most importantly students.
