Alabama Literacy Act and Dyslexia Services

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Governor Ivey signed the Alabama Literacy Act in June 2019 which mandates that all K-3 children in Alabama public schools be screened for literacy deficits including dyslexia.  Additionally, students who evidence characteristics of dyslexia as determined by the dyslexia screening must be provided with dyslexia-specific intervention. A literacy plan must be developed by the student’s teachers and parents and parents must be apprised of student progress regularly.
