Dyslexia at the Capitol

Two Interim Studies on Dyslexia in 2016

Two interim Studies by Representatives Ann Coody and Mike Shelton addressed the current status of SB 1565, passed in 2012, and the quality of life for students with dyslexia in Oklahoma. Payne Education Center and others shared with legislators the progress on securing institutions of Higher Education to participate in the SB 1565 pilot study to implement Multisensory Structured Language in teacher preparation programs and what struggles students with dyslexia face in Oklahoma's public schools.
