Louisiana – 2020 – HB 871 – Definition of Dyslexia

Louisiana

Revises the definition of dyslexia for purposes of testing and providing services to students.

Dyslexia is now defined as:

an unexpected difficulty in reading for an individual who has the intelligence to be a much better reader, most commonly caused by a difficulty in phonological processing, which affects the ability of an individual to speak, read, and spell. “Phonological processing” means the appreciation of the individual sounds of spoken and written language.
