Addressing Dyslexia in Alabama Public Schools

To be delivered to The Alabama State House, The Alabama State Senate, and Governor Kay Ivey

Petition Statement

Decoding Dyslexia Alabama is a grassroots movement by Alabama families to address the struggles we face in securing appropriate reading interventions for our children with dyslexia in Alabama public schools.
There are currently 1,369 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

We urge our Department of Education and our local policy-makers to address the following topics: 1. Establishing a universal definition and understanding of the term "dyslexia" within our state education code. 2. Mandating early screening and identification of at-risk students. 3. Mandating Alabama teacher certification and ongoing professional development to include training on dyslexia and appropriate intervention strategies. 4. Mandating the use of appropriate research based reading interventions for at-risk students in both general and special education programs. 5. Providing for access to assistive technology for all at-risk students in both general and special education programs. We call on Alabama policy-makers to support students with dyslexia. It is time for Alabama Public Schools to catch up with the science on reading and dyslexia.
