Sign Our Petition



The Petition

Decoding Dyslexia – NJ is a grassroots movement by NJ families to address the struggles we face in securing appropriate reading interventions for our children with dyslexia in NJ public schools.

We urge the current NJ Reading Disabilities Task Force as well as our local policy-makers to address the following topics:

1. Establishing a universal definition and understanding of the term “dyslexia” within our state education code.

2. Mandating early screening and identification of at-risk students.

3. Mandating NJ teacher certification and ongoing professional development to include training on dyslexia and appropriate intervention strategies.

4. Mandating the use of appropriate research based reading interventions for at-risk students in both general and special education programs.

5. Providing for access to assistive technology for all at-risk students in both general and special education programs.

We call on NJ policy-makers to support students with dyslexia. It is time for NJ Public Schools to catch up with the science on reading and dyslexia.

You’ve heard about the science of reading, but what does that really mean?

If you are not someone who devours books on reading science, this video gives you a good overview and should help you connect reading science with our NJ dyslexia laws, our NJ Dyslexia Handbook and the Federal IDEA law.
