Georgia Dyslexia Legislation

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.
