Decoding Dyslexia - Washington, DC Welcomes You

Decoding Dyslexia - DC  is a grassroots movement driven by DC families concerned about the limited access to educational interventions for students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties within our schools. We aim to raise awareness and empower families to support their children. We also want to inform policy-makers on best practices for screening, identifying, remediating, and supporting students with dyslexia and reading difficulties in DC.


Reading is a fundamental civil right, but the status quo is not working for the vast majority of DC's school children. They should have access to effective reading and spelling instruction, and it's up to all of us to make this happen.
