If you have a student who attends or attended public school in Maryland and your student/s struggles to read, write and spell, has dyslexia and/or a reading difference or is at risk for reading failure, we would like you to take this survey.

In October 2015, the Department of Education issued a Dyslexia Guidance letter because parents across the country wrote to the Department of Education asking for help on this issue.  The US DOE issued a guidance document that can be found at the link below along with an interview with Assistant Secretary for Special Education and Rehabilitation Services, Michael Yudin.  Please review this information and apply the knowledge to your own experience and let us know what's happening in YOUR school district in Maryland. #saydyslexiaMD
