New California Dyslexia Laws Signed by Governor Brown

Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2015

Governor Jerry Brown signed important legislation today (AB 1369 –Frazier, D - Oakley) aimed at helping dyslexic children in California public schools. This is the first time in over 20 years that dyslexia legislation has been enacted in the State of California.
Dyslexia, a reading disability, impacts approximately 20% of the overall population. In California alone, this means over 1 million students in public schools are dyslexic. Dyslexia is the single largest learning disability. Without proper identification and appropriate reading remediation, most dyslexic children will never read at grade level. Sadly, 73% of 4th grade students in California read below grade level.
