Dyslexia in Florida

Considering the population of the state, Florida is not home to many schools which cater to the student with dyslexia, but Lindamood Bell and the Scotish Rite do combine to provide over 30 tutoring centers for parents in need.

Recent legislation (2017) has raised the bar for school boards in the Sunshine state, now requiring early identification, effective interventions and professional development for state teachers - good news for parents. See below for more information on the legislation.

Florida Dyslexia Legislation (2018)

Under Florida regulation, dyslexia is categorized as a specific learning disability and requires “well-delivered scientific, research-based instruction and interventions addressing the identified area(s) of concern and delivered by qualified personnel in general education settings”

Recent Florida Laws have made screening, remediation and PD mandatory in the Sunshine State, a big step forward for parents of struggling readers.   

Note that students with learning disabilities are also eligible for a scholarship which allows for attending a school other than the one assigned, providing more choice for parents of students with dyslexia.
