Can You Talk About Decoding Dyslexia?

Q:
Can you talk about Decoding Dyslexia?

A:
Decoding Dyslexia is a parent-led grassroots movement for dyslexia. It aims to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.

Its goals include:

  • A universal definition and understanding of “dyslexia” in the state education code
  • Mandatory teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and appropriate intervention strategies
  • Mandatory early screening tests for dyslexia
  • Mandatory dyslexia remediation programs, which can be accessed by both general and special education populations
  • Access to appropriate “assistive technologies” in the public school setting for students with dyslexia

Each state organizes and inspires its own local movement.
