Addressing Dyslexia in NJ Public Schools

1,315 Signatures Goal: 750

Decoding Dyslexia - NJ is a grassroots movement by NJ families to address the struggles we face in securing appropriate reading interventions for our children with dyslexia in NJ 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. Mandating early screening and identification of at-risk students. 3. Mandating NJ teacher certification and ongoing professional development to include training on dyslexia and appropriate intervention strategies. 4. Mandating the use of appropriate research based reading interventions for at-risk students in both general and special education programs. 5. Providing for access to assistive technology for all at-risk students in both general and special education programs. We call on NJ policy-makers to support students with dyslexia. It is time for NJ Public Schools to catch up with the science on reading and dyslexia.

    I support this petition and strongly believe that educators should be educated on the subject of creating more inclusive and focused plans for different learners.

    Not only do we believe that teachers and administrators should be educated on the subject but each district should have a reading specialist on site who is trained to work with struggling students. Have all districts complied and what is their action plan for different learners. Do they provide the latest multi sensory reading programs, are they trained to identify struggling readers...
