ARI > Dyslexia: Enter Choice #1

On April 8, 2015, the Alabama State Board of Education Dyslexia Resolution was unanimously adopted and set forth dyslexia amendments to the Alabama Administrative Code, defining dyslexia as a “learning challenge that is neurological in origin.” Dyslexia impacts the ability of students to develop solid literacy skills-reading, writing, and spelling-which are essential in all learning in school and beyond. Students who do not develop these foundational literacy skills are considered at risk. The Alabama Reading Initiative and the Dyslexia Advisory Council have developed the Dyslexia Resource Guide and other resources for schools, teachers, administrators and families to use in providing dyslexia-specific services and support for students in Alabama’s public schools. This webpage was developed to provide public access to information, resources, learning opportunities, activities, and events related to dyslexia.
