Georgia is home to a number of helpful schools and tutoring centers for students with dyslexia. Of note, there are 13 Scottish Rite locations for tutoring in the state, which provide services free of charge. Another helpful resource for parents is the Georgian Dyslexia Resource Trust (link below), an Atlanta based nonprofit dedicated to "Empowering all who are affected by dyslexia" The Trust serves parents, students and professionals in affiliation with the Schenck School.

Although the regulatory landscape for literacy in Georgia looks bleak, the state does administer a program called the Georgia Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (GKIDS) assessment. GKIDS is conducted by grade 1 and includes an reading component, meaning that some students with dyslexia may be identified.
Otherwise parents in Georgia will have to advocate at their local school for assessment and intervention for dyslexia.
