Sign the Petition to Support the Dyslexia Task Force Act!

My Dyslexia Task Force Act, A.2185-B/S.441-C, passed the Assembly and Senate! 

The bill will establish a statewide task force to examine appropriate and effective evidence-based screening, intervention, and support for students with and at risk of dyslexia and dysgraphia. This is the result of years of work and advocacy and represents the first major piece of legislation focused on dyslexia screening, curriculum, and teacher training that has ever passed in New York, so let's make sure the Senate passes this bill!

This legislation will mandate the Commissioner of the State Education Department to create a task force of educators, doctors, researchers, parents and advocates to examine and recommend the appropriate and evidence based screening methods, curriculum changes and teacher training that should be implemented for all students in kindergarten through 5th grade with dyslexia and dysgraphia.

Sign the petition to let the Governor know she should sign it into law!

    Children need to be tested for dyslexia at an early age. Please, please make sure those who have this condition are identified and are able to get the help they need. I’ve seen the results first hand in my granddaughter – she’s made a 180 degree turn to success and confidence.

    This is a major issue that must be addressed by the NYS Legislature and the Governor before thousands more children are abandoned in the educational system.

    This is an excellent petition to ask for. To many children are slipping through the teachers hands because there is no early diagnosis. Sometimes they go through the school system without anyone knowing these children have Dyslexia ending in depression because they are confused themselves. I hope that we are heard.
