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.

    My 10 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia. After 5 years of schooling, with all of my concerns raised to her teachers, I was brushed off. Told she would get it, things would click. They didn’t. And only now is she able to get the education she needs and deserves. Shame on the New York education system.
