Decoding Dyslexia CA is a grassroots movement driven by California families, educators and professionals 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 policymakers on best practices to identify, remediate, and support students with dyslexia in CA public schools.

Decoding Dyslexia CA is advocating for: 

  • A universal definition and understanding of dyslexia.
  • Early screening for dyslexia.
  • Evidence-based remediation programs for general and special education students who show signs of dyslexia.
  • Teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and accommodation strategies that can help students with dyslexia.
  • Access to appropriate assistive technologies in the public school setting for students with dyslexia.

 

We hope to create a collective voice in California and across the country with one mission – to improve awareness and educational resources for students with dyslexia.
