NEA will use existing vehicles to recommend that all states screen students for dyslexia when a decoding deficit has been identified. In addition, NEA will advocate for students to receive appropriate evidence-based instruction that addresses their specific learning needs. NEA will also support educators’ access to training and ongoing professional development related to evidence-based strategies to teach students with decoding issues including dyslexia.

Cost Implications
