Position Statements

This web site is maintained by Davis Dyslexia Association International (DDAI) as a public service.  We created this site because we wanted to be able to track the progress of legislation in the U.S. that concerns dyslexia and might impact our work or the people we serve.

DDAI is a private, nonpartisan organization.  We are not affiliated with any political party or interest group, and we do not receive funds to support lobbying efforts or contribute as an organization to any political campaigns.   We do, however, support laws that help dyslexic children and adults in any way, and of course, we oppose laws that would hurt or limit the opportunities of dyslexic people.

DDAI will indicate its position on some legislation, based on our interpretation of the law and our opinion on how it may impact our work and the people we serve.  

We don’t have any formal process for determining our position to a bill.   We just read the proposed law and form an opinion from the text of the bill. That means that in some cases we might be persuaded that we have made a mistake and change our minds if we receive new information.  So, if you have a differing point of view and wish to make your concerns known, please feel free to post a comment on the page for that bill.

We moderate comments to avoid spam, but we welcome intelligent and respectful discussion, and we don’t censor messages simply because they express an opposing point of view.  Don’t be afraid to contribute, even if you don’t see your message showing up in the comments section right away.
