Decoding Dyslexia Wisconsin

Last week, the Wisconsin State Reading Association (WSRA) published the WSRA Update January 2021 which included two articles regarding dyslexia. Due to the inaccurate information about dyslexia and Decoding Dyslexia WI contained in the second article, the Decoding Dyslexia Organizing Committee will issue a series of responses.


"Dyslexia Guidebook Advisory Committee's Respectful Conversations" page 12

"Essential Understandings: Dyslexia, Equity and Monolithic Solutions" page 17

Here is the link to the full WSRA Update.

Decoding Dyslexia Wisconsin is a parent-led grassroots movement 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.

What Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.
