Dear Representative (Representatives Name)
I am writing to you to encourage you to cosponsor and support H.R 3033. The “Research Excellence and Advancements for Dyslexia Act” or the “READ Act” cleared the bi-partisan House Science, Space, and Technology Committee on October 8th. This resolution will require research in Disabilities Education program of the National Science Foundation to devote at least $5 million annually to dyslexia research.
Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 individuals and makes up 80% of the students in special education.
There is a lot of research on dyslexia that sadly is not being implemented in North Carolina schools and throughout the United States. Please help address the needs of your dyslexic constituents by supporting this bill. The literacy rate and the read to achieve failures in North Carolina could be greatly improved if research like this were put into practice.
Don’t know who your representative is. Find you Representative here.
