Requires the Superintendent of Public Instruction to develop program guidelines for dyslexia to be used to assist regular education teachers, special education teachers, and parents to identify and assess pupils with dyslexia, and to plan, provide, evaluate, and improve educational services, as defined, to pupils with dyslexia. The bill would require the Superintendent to disseminate the program guidelines through the State Department of Education’s Internet Web site and to provide technical assistance regarding their use and implementation to specified persons.
Defines “educational services” as evidence-based, multisensory, direct, explicit, structured, and sequential approach to instructing pupils who have dyslexia.

Thank you for your support. Unfortunately, my disability counselor, at college, wasn’t supportive; she believes if I needed clinical accommodation, I should have requested at the beginning of the semester; while I even didn’t know about it and she had never talked about clinical accommodation before; although, I had accommodation for test and my instructor knew that I am DRD student.
please help me.
I have dyslexia and I am in the third semester of nursing program. Recently, my instructor failed me because she believed I am slow. When I researched, I found out that in other countries like England, they have Dyslexia laws that support nursing students by providing a little bit more supporting environment. Is there any laws here in America to support me?
How I can get help?
You could potentially receive accommodations pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act. Here’s a link to an article that gives basic information: http://www.ldonline.org/article/5999/
You could start by contacting the office for disability services at your university.
