Parents and teachers TOGETHER are working as a team ensuring all teachers and their school districts have the resources they need to reach the 1 in 5 students with dyslexia. We need everyone’s help. You do not need to have a child with dyslexia to be involved with DDCA. Amazingly, everyone knows someone with dyslexia. Our elected officials need to know that the people living in their district are concerned.
