The human brain was not designed to read. It was built for oral communication. Reading must be explicitly taught. Some people learn to read with ease, others find it more difficult.

People who struggle with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia are not stupid and their brains are not broken. In fact, dyslexics often think of creative and unexpected ways to solve problems and challenges.

Dyslexia and Dysgraphia are lifelong conditions that are not curable but every day we learn more and more about how to treat them and create real opportunities for success.

Dyslexia Laws Across the United States

  • States with existing enacted Dyslexia laws
  • States with Dyslexia laws pending
  • States with Dyslexia handbooks / resources
  • States without Dyslexia laws

Recent grassroots efforts have led to a widespread push by legislatures to regulate what schools are required to do to identify and then support dyslexic students. These initiatives across the country are growing and becoming more inclusive. If momentum continues, the goal is to assure all students, including dyslexic students, have every opportunity to succeed and the tools to do so.
