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!

    Screening for dyslexia would be a game changer for so many kids, as would adding multi-sensory phonics to all classrooms!

    The way that dyslexic children suffer in public schools is atrocious and unnecessary. Please screen children in kindergarten and teach dyslexic children with a multi-sensory approach. Think of the potential that is never tapped because dyslexic children don’t get the intervention they need. We all loose.

    It is extremely important that we get an early handle on learning disabilities or, as I prefer to describe them, learning in non-traditional ways as soon as possible.
