Grassroots Engagement

Decoding Dyslexia is a network of parent-led grassroots movements across the country concerned with limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within the public education system. The group aims to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children, and inform policymakers on best practices to identify, remediate, and support students with dyslexia. The group advocates for a universal definition and understanding of “dyslexia” in the state education code; mandatory teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs, and appropriate intervention strategies; mandatory early screening tests for dyslexia and remediation programs, which can be accessed by both general and special education populations; and access to appropriate assistive technologies in the public school setting for students with dyslexia. Each state organizes and inspires its own local movement by networking with families and professionals to gain support for the Decoding Dyslexia mission.
