“Dyslexia affects millions of Americans, including many students. We know that many with dyslexia are among our brightest and most successful. If dyslexia is identified in elementary school and the appropriate resources are given to these children, America can produce more teachers, more scientists and more entrepreneurs. This resolution pushes schools and educational agencies to address this challenge and provide evidence-based solutions for dyslexic students.”
Please click Cassidy House Dyslexia Resolution January 10 2014 to read the pdf version of the resolution H.RES.456.
Please contact your U.S. House of Representative and ask him/her to support the Dyslexia Resolution that Congressman Cassidy introduced in the House today and to join the Bipartisan Congressional Dyslexia Caucus.
Hopefully this will be the impetus for eventually enacting national dyslexia legislation.
Finally, Someone to step up and begin to “fix” this problem for struggling readers, dyslexia! I have been using an Orton Gillingham program to teach students with dyslexia for 6 years. As a special education teacher of 11 years, the difference in progress by using a program that “works” for dyslexia and most programs that schools across the nation are using that DO NOT WORK, the results are amazing! I have lived it, as I teach, shared success with students, parents who had given up hope, and have email testimonials of success and relief, and text messages that ring in my ears like bells from heaven. I was given a gift and have been working to change lives, one child at a time!!!!Darlene Merz
