Dyslexia in New Jersey

New Jersey has long been a leader in identifying and helping students with dyslexia, in large part resulting from parent lead initiatives culminating in state legislation requiring early identification and remediation of reading disability.

There are a large number of independent schools and tutoring centers for parents to consider.  New Jersey is also where Decoding Dyslexia got its start, a movement which subsequently spread to all 50 states and 4 Canadian provinces—so far!

New Jersey Dyslexia Legislation

New Jersey was an early adopter of dyslexia legislation. Today all students who exhibit indicators of dyslexia or other reading disabilities must be screened no later than the end of the first semester of grade 2. Also, according to the legislation, school boards “shall provide appropriate evidence-based intervention strategies to the student, including intense instruction on phonemic awareness, phonics and fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.”
