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.

    In tbeNYC Dept of Educ. There is a serious lack of proper support and education for the children who have been identified as dyslexic . There must be more funding in that direction to provide these students the education they are entitled to.

    there is a strong need for more, much more, funding! There is not enough support for the children with dyslexia. The D. of E. MUST implement services necessary to properly educate those students.

    As a grandparent of a child with dyslexia and the sister of a man with dyslexia I have seen them both struggle with learning to read. We’ve come a long way since the 60s when my brother was diagnosed. The earlier the diagnosis is made the more help we can give.
