Legalize Dyslexia: Grant Accommodations to Dyslexic Students.

This petition had 22,438 supporters


We're asking that Congress require that testing agencies grant accommodations for dyslexic students so that high stakes tests assess ability and not disability, and students are allowed to go forward and succeed in life. High stakes tests must be reliable, valid and accessible to dyslexic children and adults. Without accommodations, highly capable, intelligent students are being denied the opportunity to show what they can achieve.
