Well, I'm flabbergasted. I tracked my kids very early on worrying about dyslexia. Their teachers have assured me they are fine. My husband and many of the men in his family have it pretty bad. Thankfully, the kids have not had issues with it.
But, I was just talking to a parent who has dyslexia and sees the symptoms in her son. So, she has been trying to get her son tested (for 1 1/2 years) in order to get him some additional help. He is at the point where he is begining to struggle. Found out our state does not recognize dyslexia as a learning disability and will not test children for it. In order to get a child additional help, they have to be diagnosed with a learning disability.
I'm really considering seeing if the PTA/PTSA will push this through our legislative chair next year. I cannot believe the state does not recognize it as a learning disability.
This flabbergasts me. Is anyone elses state/district like this?
