"...Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 1369,
authored by Assemblyman Jim Frazier, D-Oakley. The new law requires
schools to assess struggling readers specifically for dyslexia, the most prevalent learning disability
in the U.S. and a disorder that affects as many as 80 percent of
California students with learning disabilities in special education,
according to Kathy Futterman, a supervisor in educational psychology and
teacher education at California State University East Bay."
