Educational Reform for Dyslexia in NJ Schools
Decoding Dyslexia – NJ is a grassroots movement driven by NJ families concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities within our public schools. 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 in NJ public schools.

Join us as we explore the science of reading! From decades of research, we have learned a lot about how children learn to read and the components of instruction that are considered the building blocks of reading achievement. We know that for some children the path to literacy is an easy one yet for others, there can be bumps along the way. This session will provide useful information for helping your child become a skilled reader as well as what to look for in quality reading instruction at all grade levels. See MoreSee Less

People are entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts or science. The letter-sound relationship is the foundation of our written system. This is established science/fact and accessible to anyone (teachers/parents) who cares to inquire.Let’s disregard this man’s opinion and go with the brain research of Stanislas Dehaene Nadine Gaab @The Reading League #teach #ReadingInTheBrain #Science #Dyslexia #Brain #Read
