Event description


Oregon Families,

Please join us on February 26th for this hands on workshop to learn about government and advocacy and then share your story with legislators.

In 2015, Decoding Dyslexia Oregon initiated legislation to impact teacher knowledge on dyslexia. Additional legislation was passed in 2017 requiring Oregon public schools to screen kindergarten students for the risk factors of dyslexia. This screening was to begin this school year.

This legislation was only the tip of the iceberg! More work needs to be done to improve teacher training and education for Oregon's dyslexic students. This is an opportunity to have face-to-face discussions about the challenges you continue to face. We will discuss ideas and strategies to impact future legislation.
