Office of Diane M. Douglas

Superintendent of Public Instruction


April 24, 2017

Dear Education Community,

I am pleased to share a new resource available for families and teachers to help identify and support students with dyslexia. As a result of legislation sponsored by State Representative Jill Norgaard (R) LD-18, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has developed The Dyslexia Handbook, a technical assistance document which can be found here http://www.azed.gov/dyslexia/.

State information and resources about dyslexia have previously not been available in a format designed to be used by parents and teachers to raise awareness about this disability. I am thankful that Representative Norgaard's leadership on this issue has brought together parents and education organizations from around the state to collaborate with ADE and develop this important new resource.

In addition to today's official launch of The Dyslexia Handbook, those involved in the development of this document testified on this item in front of the State Board of Education and shared the group's next steps to support families and teachers of students with dyslexia. The group will begin focusing on the importance of early identification by increasing professional development opportunities for current teachers and will promote dyslexia education in teacher preparation programs at post-secondary institutions.

Early identification of dyslexia is critical to eliminate negative impacts on the child's learning. By providing classroom teachers and parents the knowledge and tools to detect these barriers in student learning, we can get students the immediate support and resources they need to be successful.


Sincerely,

Diane M. Douglas

Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction
