Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina

Thanks EducationNC, for letting us speak about the critical need to address dyslexia in NC!

Defining dyslexia and identifying students who have it is critical

“The earlier the identification, the more successful the outcome. More importantly, direct, explicit, evidence-based instruction would benefit all children in North Carolina. If we addressed reading instruction using Structured Literacy (SL), all students, not just students with dyslexia, would benefit.The results of saving state resources by closing the reading achievement gap and potentially shrinking the prison populations could have significant positive outcomes.”
