Its hard to believe it has been two years since the Say Dyslexia Bill passed in Tennessee. It was such an amazing thing to be a part of. While I cheered from the sidelines on Social Media to encourage law makers to support this important Bill, so many others did so much to get this law passed. I am proud that much of the hard work was done by members of Decoding Dyslexia – TN. A huge thank you goes out to Lori Smith, Julia Johnson, Representative Joe Pitts and JC Bowman with ProEd Tennessee.
The Bill was signed into Law on June 9, 2016. Stay tuned for another post then.
The new law has not made things perfect for students with dyslexia, but it has made them so much better. There is still so much to do…lets keep at it y’all.
