Petition - Dyslexia

One in five students is dyslexic.  50% of 4th Graders are not reading on grade level.  Only seven states nationwide evaluate all Kindergarten and 1st Graders for Dyslexia and as a consequence so many of our students go undiagnosed.

Join Brooke Lyn and me and sign our petition to call on the Governor, Mayor, Chancellor & Legislature to make New York the eighth state to universally screen all Kindergartners for dyslexia and to work together to dedicate the resources necessary to ensure that all of our children who struggle with dyslexia and other learning differences get the quality education that they deserve.

    Thank you. My son is dyslexic and is a student at a funded school for kids with language based LDs. He is doing great because he is there. We need more testing and awareness of all learning differences.

    I agree that we need early screening for dyslexia. In addition, we need to focus funds and resources towards helping kids who are diagnosed get the appropriate interventions that will prepare them to learn to read.
