Students In Ohio May Soon Be Screened For Dyslexia

Dear Friends,

On May 7th IDA Central Ohio and several supporters of IDA testified to the Senate Education Committee concerning SB 102. This mandates dyslexia screening for public schools. The language of the bill is still being modified based on work done with a legislative committee made up of both Northern Ohio IDA and Central Ohio IDA members. In addition, a parent from Buckeye Valley provided proponent testimony (heart-breaking story).

The testimony was broadcast on a government channel and can be viewed at the link below. The testimony was on May 7th and starts at the 42:00 minute mark. Watch the presentation and the Q&A from the Senators afterwards.

Mike McGovern
President, IDA Central Ohio
