North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s Exceptional Children Division Director Bill Hussey has issued a Dyslexia Topic Brief to lead administrators and charter schools. This brief was issued in response to the October 23rd guidance letter on dyslexia issued by the U.S. Department of Education. Director Hussey also issued this brief to “provide clarification around dyslexia in North Carolina public schools.”

Guidance letter on Dyslexia – U.S. Department of Education
We have also reached out to State Superintendent Dr. June Atkinson with ideas on how to get the U.S. Department of Education’s guidance letter on dyslexia to the front lines of our schools. We are hopeful that she will take our ideas into consideration. Getting information about dyslexia to the schools and teachers is vital for our children.
