    A good starting point is to check our legislative tracking site, Dyslegia.com. Begin by searching for your state name to see whether there already is or has been a bill pending. If not, then look for the links under “Advocacy Organizations” and “Legislative Resources” on the right side of the page. Find out who your own state representatives are, based on where you live, and call or write to them.

    As an attorney who has a younger brother with dyslexia, I am glad that these laws have been passed to help children with this particular need. My brother did not have specialized assistance when he was attending school and unfortunately his schoolwork suffered.

    I believe it should absolutely be the school’s responsibility to provide additional services for this.

I just posted a Wrightslaw YouTube video of my Keynote at Richmond VA’s Empowering Dyslexia Day. I go back to the history of Dr. Orton’s 1925 presentation about Strephosymbolia before the American Neurological Assoc. URL is at
