Dyslexia in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania has an active community of professional and parent led organizations helping those with dyslexia. In addition to its schools and tutoring centers listed below, the state's Pennsylvania Dyslexia Literacy Coalition brings volunteer parent advocates and education professionals together to: 

1. Raise awareness and to create an accurate understanding about Dyslexia.
2. Ensure  ALL children learn to read by supporting teachers training in evidenced based  Reading instruction.
3. Support early screening and interventions in evidence based Reading instruction.

Combined with the state Decoding Dyslexia group and the IDA branch, parents and students in the state appear to be in good hands.

Pennsylvania Dyslexia Legislation

In 2014, Pennsylvania established a Dyslexia and Early Literacy Intervention Pilot Program to “provide evidence-based early screening and multitier support systems, using evidence-based intervention services for students with potential risk factors for early reading deficiencies and dyslexia.”

But since 2014, there appears to be no mandated requirement for assessment or interventions for struggling readers. Parents should inquire with their local school and board to ensure their struggling reader is identified and supported.
