GREAT NEWS! Our Dyslexia Bill, AB1369 has passed the Assembly and the Senate and was signed by Governor Jerry Brown. Thank you to all who supposed this along its trip.  You can read the final bill here.

AB 1369, Frazier. Special education: dyslexia.

This bill would require the Superintendent of Public Instruction to develop, and to complete in time for use no later than the beginning of the 2017–18 academic year, program guidelines for dyslexia to be used to assist regular education teachers, special education teachers, and parents to identify and assess pupils with dyslexia, and to plan, provide, evaluate, and improve educational services, as defined, to pupils with dyslexia. The bill would require the Superintendent to disseminate the program guidelines through the State Department of Education’s Internet Web site and to provide technical assistance regarding their use and implementation to specified persons.

(2) Existing regulations adopted by the State Board of Education include specific basic psychological processes in the definition of “specific learning disability.” This bill would require the state board to include “phonological processing” in that description of basic psychological processes.

Also – there is a National Dyslexia Resolution that was passed.  Check it out.

Never Give Up
More than one in ten children in the US struggle with dyslexia or other language based learning difference.
Without appropriate intervention, struggling readers have a higher probability of not completing high school.
Their dreams are dashed. Their opportunities are diminished. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Literacy is one of the most important issues facing us today. Dyslexics can thrive if we all take advantage of neuroplasticity (the brain differences among us).  TCB strives to share with teachers and parents how they can hop on this train through our webinars, conferences, and other programs.  Einstein said, "Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its life believing it is stupid!"
