Dyslexia In Maryland

Maryland sports a number of independent schools and tutoring centers for dyslexia. The state also struck a task force and pilot program which have things moving in the right direction.  Although early assessment is now mandatory, effective remediation isn't, so parents will have to monitor how their child is being supported in their local school.

Maryland Dyslexia Legislation

Maryland established a task force on dyslexia in 2015, and a pilot program in 2017. The final report from the task force calls for universal screening beginning in kindergarten and a multi-tiered system of supports for those identified as being in need, but this is not yet policy.

Currently students must be assessed in reading by the end of grade 2, so parents of younger students may have to advocate for screening and interventions, but things appear headed in the right direction in Maryland.
