DECODING DYSLEXIA - NJ
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.

We had a great time at the LDANJ Fall Conference last Sunday. Met lots of wonderful parents, students, educators and professionals! Our Parent Roundtable session was a success and parents and experts both agreed it was very inspiring to talk with each other in that casual and organic way. We hope to do it again in the Spring!

Decoding Dyslexia - NJ

Our NJ dyslexia screening law states that if a child has 1 indicator of dyslexia and is in kindergarten thru 1st semester of 2nd grade (before the end of the 2nd marking period of 4 marking periods), then the child needs to be screened.

The law does NOT state WHO has to be the one to point out that indicator and ask for the screening. Therefore, that means the parent, teacher, speech therapist, OT, grandparent, administrator, etc. are all able to start this process. The law also does NOT LIMIT which indicators qualify.

Learn more about our NJ and Federal laws at our DDNJ parent roundtable session at the LDANJ conference THIS Sunday!!Don’t be fooled by the “Wait to Fail” model. #EarlyID #ReadacrossMD See MoreSee Less
