Decoding Dyslexia Alabama

We cannot solve…

We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
~Albert Einstein

Our group is made up of parents of children who are dyslexic. We are not experts, nor are we a business or educational organization. We can only offer other parents the benefit of our collective experiences. We encourage parents to meet with their local policy-makers to tell the story of their child, and ask for policies and/or legislation to identify and support dyslexic children in our public schools.

MISSION

We are advocating for Alabama to implement:

• A universal definition and understanding of “dyslexia” in the state education code

• Mandatory teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and appropriate intervention strategies

• Mandatory early screening tests for dyslexia

• Mandatory dyslexia remediation programs, which can be accessed by both general and special education populations

• Access to appropriate “assistive technologies” in the public school setting for students with dyslexia
