Petition to Support Dyslexia Legislation in Oregon

Listen with webreader

Join us! Parents and teachers TOGETHER are trying to ensure all teachers and their school districts have the resources they need to reach the 1 in 5 students with dyslexia. We need everyone’s help. Amazingly, everyone knows someone with dyslexia. Our elected officials need to know that the people living in their district are concerned. Each and every petition is the voice of a voter telling our legislators to support the proposed bill that will be introduced to be voted into Oregon state law.  Thank YOU! ~ Decoding Dyslexia Oregon

YES! Help Oregon Students with Dyslexia

Our Goal is 2000 signatures! (Enter YOUR email address on the petition)

As many as 1 in 5 students have dyslexia, and yet Oregon’s universities do not provide teacher training on how to effectively teach these bright, eager and capable students.

I wholeheartedly support a dyslexia bill in Oregon that will:
• Ensure current teachers know the warning signs of dyslexia
• Ensure University teacher preparation programs offer coursework on dyslexia
• Ensure school districts screen for the risk factors of dyslexia in the earliest grades
• Ensure ODE has a dyslexia specialist on staff to help school districts address dyslexia
