​Decoding Dyslexia – MA is a grassroots movement driven by parents, educators and
professionals concerned with the limited access to research based interventions for dyslexia.
We are inspired by and collaborating with other Decoding Dyslexia groups nationwide.

We aim to raise awareness, to empower students with dyslexia and their families, and
to inform policy makers on best practices to identify, remediate, and support students with
​dyslexia in Massachusetts public schools and institutions of higher learning.

We have successfully lobbied to enact a dyslexia screening law in MA. 

We continue to advocate statewide for equal access to all children to appropriate instruction before and to prevent reading failure.
