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.

    When I was a child few educators even recognized or understood dyslexia. If I had been identified and helped when I was very young, my whole academic career would have been so much easier and certainly not the humiliating horror it was throughout grade school. That young students might now have that advantage and be given help to deal with dyslexia warms my heart to no end!
