Addressing Dyslexia in NY Public Schools

Decoding Dyslexia - NY is a grassroots movement led by NY families to address the challenges and struggles we face in obtaining the appropriate reading interventions for our children in NY public schools. We urge our Department of Education and our local policy-makers to address the following topics:

1. Establishing a universal definition and understanding of the term "Dyslexia" within our state education code.

2. Early screening and identification for Dyslexia.

3. Teacher certification and ongoing professional development to include training for Dyslexia and appropriate evidence-based intervention strategies.

4. Appropriate science and evidence based reading interventions for at-risk students and children with Dyslexia in both general and special education programs.

5. Providing access to assistive technology for at-risk students in both general and special education programs.

We call on New York policy-makers to support students with Dyslexia and follow the science, evidence and successful practicum for reading and Dyslexia.
