Massachusetts Dyslexia Screening Legislation 2017 S.313, H.330, S.294 and H.2872

This petition had 2,379 supporters

Massachusetts Dyslexia legislation (newly filed in 2017) is a first step to help improve reading by considering the most reliable predictor of 3rd-grade reading failure, dyslexia, and screening for 1. Phonemic Awareness, 2. Rapid Automatized Naming and 3. Letter-Sound Knowledge

Dyslexia is neurobiological and makes learning to read more difficult.   The science and research exists to help these students early, teachers need to and want to know the science. Let's not let the legislative session end without helping the students with dyslexia.  Please include the Massachusetts city or town you live in when leaving your message.
