The 'Gift' of DyslexiaIt's The Law

All public schools are required by law to provide learning disability testing and special help for dyslexics. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, passed in 1975 and reauthorized in 1990, guarantees free public education for all disabled students, including dyslexics. Many schools have special programs set up for dyslexic students. Usually, the students work in small groups. They receive instruction from trained teachers, reading specialists, and tutors. They work on reading, writing, spelling, and math. Some schools work with private clinics, tutors, or college programs. The students travel off campus each day for their instruction.
