Decoding Dyslexia Idaho

Decoding Dyslexia - ID is a grassroots movement driven by Idaho families concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities within our public schools. We aim to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Idaho public schools.
