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 too was dyslexic as a child and was never diagnosed. I had difficulty reading and stressed trying to keep up with the other kids.

    It begins with one. Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Faith as small as a mustard seed can move mountains. #brookelynsmom #advocatefordyslexia #advocateforyourkids

    multi-sensory phonics-based reading intervention helped my son learn to read and helps my students (English Language Learners) too! Every child should have access to these programs.
