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.

    John Russell As a former public school superintendent and as the current head of The Windward School, I am absolutely certain that this initiative will help all students become better readers, writers and spellers.

    This is long overdue. Every child should be screened.

    My nephews went undiagnosed for years. Their struggles caused a great deal of stress for the entire family and made my nephews feel defeated. Not good for their confidence. Early diagnosis will open a whole new world for those with dyslexia and give them opportunities that they may not ever get if not diagnosed and treated early. People with Dyslexia are smart! They just need the tools.

    Please! We need more teachers to be certified in Orton and we need more schools to teach in a way dyslexics learn!!! We are struggling and paying too much out of our pockets.
