What is Decoding Dyslexia?
Decoding Dyslexia Oregon is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization driven by Oregon families and educators who recognized the need for conversations with our school districts and policy makers regarding dyslexia. In addition to raising awareness, providing resources and advocating for the dyslexia community, we are working to make systemic changes in our universities and schools to improve literacy instruction for all.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Decoding Dyslexia Oregon acknowledges that too many learners, beyond those who have dyslexia, are not being taught to read. Whether a learner has a dyslexia diagnosis or not, the harmful and profound impacts of difficulties with reading acquisition are similar. Good reading instruction is good reading instruction and it benefits all learners. Guided by our equity council, we have expanded our focus beyond dyslexia to include literacy initiatives that support racially, culturally and linguistically diverse learners through collaborations and partnerships with local community based organizations.
