2021 Legislative Session
Decoding Dyslexia Virginia chooses one day a year, during the current legislative session, to come together in Richmond to visit legislators in their offices to educate them on dyslexia by sharing our stories in order to direct their attention toward students with dyslexia in Virginia. We share resources and ask them to support our dyslexia legislation.
