Events at the Tri-Counties Branch of the IDA

Great news!  Our dyslexia bill passed the Senate yesterday with a unanimous vote (our 6th!).  Now it is going to Governor Brown to sign.  The school establishment (special education (SELPA), administrators, psychologists (CASP) and state school board (SCBA) organizations have continuously opposed the bill, so we need to let Governor Brown know the children, parents, family members, colleagues, neighbors, teachers, tutors, and community members are in support.

Please send your letters of support SOON – the Governor should get them by September 16, 2015.  If you wrote a personal letter previously, just send it with edits because personal letters are so much more powerful.  I’ve attached the form letter below.  Just print your name and address at the top and sign below. (If you choose to send the form letter, you still could add a personal message to make it more powerful.)

You can put more than one letter in each envelope.  Here is the governor’s address: 

Governor Jerry Brown
c/o State Capitol, Suite 1173
Sacramento, CA 95814

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!"
