The Senate Ways & Means
Moved the Senate Dyslexia Screening bill forward! July 16th, 2018
This means that some time this week,
the Full Massachusetts Senate
VOTE on Dyslexia Screening.
In The Massachusetts House of Representatives the
Bill is still in Ways and Means.
Your help is still needed.
Remember you have 2 Legislators,
House Rep. and Senator
Calls and visits are making a difference.
1. Call or visit your State Representative.
Tell them :
"the Senate has taken Action and will vote." and
Ask them: "Please help support House Bill H.4394. by contacting House Ways and Means."
2. Call or visit your State Senator
Does your Senator already support the Bill thank him or her.
EVERY DDMA follower in Massachusetts
needs to call!
If you have not called this week - call!
Thanks to all those who called or visited it truly makes a big difference ..
but we still have work to do.
Without early screening kids with dyslexia get stuck on the red line until they fail and need expensive and intensive remediation. Screening to intervene early with effective intervention will keep kids moving on track without big gaps!
Close the gap before it happens.
The Massachusetts Senate and
House of Representative have pending
Dyslexia Legislation bills.
Both H.4394 and S.2443
dyslexia is neurological
(biologically and heritable) and both bills require regulations to establish a process for early screening.
In person visits to the state house
or district offices
are critical this week!
Talk to staff members, legislative aids and of course if possible legislators!
Share your story, and this handout.
