GOP bill to re-designate dyslexia under federal statute

U.S. Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on Dec. 2 led four Republican colleagues in introducing legislation that would amend the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to improve provisions related to dyslexia. 

“Dyslexia has no impact on a student’s intelligence,” Sen. Cassidy said. “We know how to teach a student with dyslexia how to read and reach their full potential, but we have to identify their need before they fall behind.”
