Parents, caregivers, educators, and legislators are working together to ensure all teachers and their school districts have the resources they need to reach students with or at risk of dyslexia. We need everyone’s help. You do not need to have a child with dyslexia to be involved with Decoding Dyslexia CA. Amazingly, almost everyone knows someone with dyslexia. Our elected officials need to know that the people living in their district care about this issue.

Decoding Dyslexia CA is advocating for:
- A universal definition and understanding of dyslexia.
- Early identification for dyslexia.
- Evidence-based remediation programs for general and special education students who show signs of dyslexia.
- Teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs, and accommodation strategies that can help students with dyslexia.
- Access to appropriate assistive technologies in the public school setting for students with dyslexia.
- advocate for policies and legislation that advance access and best practices in literacy instruction for all students by recognizing that access to evidence-based literacy instruction is a civil right.
