Dyslexia in New York State

The Empire State has not been a leader in serving struggling readers - lacking mandated early identification, remediation or PD, but it does serve as home to a number of great schools and tutoring centers which cater to the dyslexic student—The Gow School in particular is well known for their excellent program.

The state has also  recently issued guidance to school districts regarding the needs of students with dyslexia so things seem to be on the right track.

New York State Dyslexia Legislation

A 2015 New York State Bill requiring certification of teachers and dyslexia failed but, a watered-down Bill A8262 did pass which empowered the Commissioner of Education to issue guidance to school districts on the unique educational needs of students with dyslexia.

A more recent Senate Bill also failed to pass which would have established a pilot program to provide early screening and intervention services for children with risk factors for dyslexia.
