Decoding Dyslexia - CT is a grassroots movement driven by Connecticut families, teachers and advocates concerned with the limited identification and 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 our public schools.

Our group is made up of advocates for children who are dyslexic. We are not experts, nor are we a business or educational organization. We can only offer other parents the benefit of our collective experiences. We encourage parents to meet with their local policy-makers to tell the story of their child, and ask for policies and/or legislation to identify and support dyslexic children in our public schools.

Please become a part of the solution by volunteering and/or becoming a member of Decoding Dyslexia - CT. You can also LIKE us on Facebook, FOLLOW us on Twitter @DDyslexiaCT to stay in touch with our progress and receive useful information.
