Representative Osmond has agreed to help us move forward with introducing legislation! Thank you for your help and guidance moving forward!
We want to thank Senator Bush for meeting with us in July. It was a wonderful discussion and we are excited to have her support moving forward!
Imagine, after years of thinking you were one, in a handful of parents, who had a child with dyslexia, a child who was not identified early in their educational career, a child, even with the diagnosis of dyslexia, was not provided appropriate instruction, in a room packed with parents from across the United States with whom the same experience is shared; we could have told each other’s story. I found it oddly comforting, misery does love company, and yet energizing.
If you believe our schools should be screening children for signs of dyslexia, providing evidence based instruction by certified teachers and access to assistive technology. Please sign and share our petition! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/819/732/720/support-illinois-dyslexia-legislation/
