Decoding Dyslexia GA

Decoding Dyslexia GA is part of a network of parent-led grassroots movements across the country concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within the public education system. We aim to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.


We are advocating for the following policy goals:

A universal definition and understanding of “dyslexia” in the state education code
Mandatory teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and appropriate intervention strategies
Mandatory early screening tests for dyslexia
Mandatory dyslexia remediation programs, which can be accessed by both general and special education populations
Access to appropriate “assistive technologies” in the public school setting for students with dyslexia

all about

our history

Each state organizes and inspires its own local movement by networking with families and professionals to gain support for the Decoding Dyslexia mission. We recognize the power of the collective parent voice and work diligently to encourage individuals and organizations to partner and collaborate in the best interest of supporting families and advancing services for dyslexics.

We are truly grassroots. Everyone involved in DDGA is a volunteer. We welcome you to join us.
