  1. This bill started with the concern of a homeschooling parent in Wyoming. Kelly Attebury removed her daughters from school because of difficulty getting testing and services for dyslexia. She shared her story with her state senator; he agreed that the law needed to be changed and introduced the bill that has now become law. You can read Kelly’s story here:
