Our Mission

We are advocating for Virginia to implement:

  • Teacher/staff training on dyslexia, its warning signs and appropriate intervention strategies

  • Early screening tests for dyslexia to include parental notification

  • Evidenced-based dyslexia remediation programs implemented with fidelity which can be accessed by both general and special education populations

  • Access to appropriate “assistive technologies” in the public school setting for students with dyslexia

Virginia has a universal definition of dyslexia in the state education code:
