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.

    I encourage you to support this initiative; to screen all children and to change the way the NY state supports kids with dyslexia.

    This action has been needed so much for decades. The school system can save thousands of students from frustration and shame by testing and treating dyslexia early. Ultimately the school system will save money, and overall reading scores will rise.
