On Thursday, March 18th, Representatives Chrissy Houlahan, Bruce Westerman, Julia Brownley, and Brian Fitzpatrick reintroduced The Reading Early and Addressing Dyslexia (READ) Act.
The READ Act is a bipartisan bill that would create a grant program to replicate Pennsylvania’s Dyslexia Screening and Early Literacy Intervention Program, which uses evidence-based screening, evidence-based instruction, and intervention for students found to be at risk for early reading deficiencies or dyslexia. This bill would allow for other states to replicate this program to best support teachers in instructing students how to read.
LDA supports the READ Act because it implements evidence-based reading instruction, and enhances public school’s capacity to serve students at risk for dyslexia and other reading disabilities.
