Current action items for Senators
Thank Senator Hatch for supporting the new addition to the Every Child Achieves Act is a provision that would allow for the creation of a Comprehensive Center to help students struggling with literacy. This Center – a first-of-its-kind for students with reading disabilities – would provide resources to educators and parents so they can better support and instruct children who are at-risk of not attaining full literacy skills due to a disability, such as dyslexia or disabilities related to reading, writing, language processing, comprehension, or executive functioning. Ask both Senators to ensure this addition remains in the compromise bill with the House ESEA reauthorization.
