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.

    Currently waiting for a settlement or impatial hearing for my dyslexic child whom is suppose to be attending 10th grd. NYC student need educator whom comprehend and can educate children with Dyslexia. The DOE needs to do meaningful recommendation and IEP’s, stop the labling.. Get them diagnos & treat/ remediate them. Our kids are being deprived of their FAPE in the appropriate timely manner to set them up for success. My child was diagnosed in 5th grd, held over and still struggling to get the FAPE. She has been in special ed since preschool, multiple meetings and never did they referred her out to get a independent evaluation.
