Governor Brown signs AB 1369 into Law!

This is the first time in over 20 years that dyslexia legislation has been enacted in the State of California.  The new law will require California to update the criteria for identifying dyslexic children for special education services by adding "phonological processing" to the criteria for determining eligibility for special education services.  It also calls for the State Superintendent of Public Instruction and the CA Department of Ed. to develop guidelines to assist teachers, parents, and professionals identify, assess and improve educational services for dyslexic students.
