Decoding Dyslexia CA is a grassroots movement driven by California families, educators, and professionals dedicated to improving literacy outcomes for struggling readers, including those with dyslexia. We aim to empower families, inform policymakers on best practices in literacy instruction, and raise dyslexia awareness.

DDCA believes that literacy is foundational to opportunity and that access to evidence-based literacy instruction is a civil right. DDCA recognizes that educational inequities exist that can create significant barriers for children of color, English Learners, and children with disadvantaged socioeconomic status in our CA public schools. We strive to reverse the profound inequities faced by children in these impacted communities who are struggling to read. We advocate for policies and legislation that advance access to best practices in literacy instruction.
