How Does Your State Measure Up?

Click on our interactive map to view a more in-depth look at dyslexia reading programs, specific legislation, intervention requirements, CALT training facilities, specific testing centers, and information on your state’s dyslexia resources.

All information has been derived from web searches as of December 2020, has not been paid for support, and has not directly followed up to ensure all phone numbers and email addresses are currently valid. The rating was created based on a criteria scale developed strictly from these web searches to compile state information for parents in an easily accessible manner.

Specific Learning Disabilities

The federal Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) lists conditions that make students eligible for special education. One of those 13 conditions is a Specific Learning Disability (SLD) of which dyslexia is one — in fact, the first line of the definition of dyslexia published by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) states that dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin.

    Why Are All The States Different?

    Even though IDEA governs special education nationwide, each state offers a variety of dyslexia reading programs and dyslexia resources.

    That’s because the nation allows individual states to dictate how they handle and address dyslexia assessment and intervention. In fact, the Individuals with Disabilities Act is not specific enough to define dyslexia, nor does it dictate exactly how each state should address it.

    Many states have passed additional legislation that extends rights and protections for students with dyslexia. State laws are more in-depth than what is specifically lined out for dyslexia in IDEA.

    Some states are doing a much better job at that than others. And regardless of how “progressive” some states are, they still have room to grow.

    My State’s Dyslexia Support Grade

    See how your state measures using our “grading guide.” This scale was created exclusively using criteria developed by Dyslexia On Demand to assist parents in understanding the level of servicing and support they can expect from their home turf. Additionally, our intention is to motivate parents to take a more active role in their state’s dyslexia advocacy efforts once they see where their state stands.

    Our Dyslexia Support Grade Criteria

    When looking at rating criteria, the following 8 items were taken into consideration by Dyslexia On Demand:

    1. If the state has dyslexia legislation
    2. If the state has dyslexia screening requirements
    3. If the state requires some level of dyslexia training for its teachers prior to certification (pre-service)
    4. If the state requires some level of dyslexia training for its teachers for in-service yearly (in-service)
    5. If the state requires specialized dyslexia intervention that is evidence-based
    6. If the state uses “Results Driven Accountability” as a way to measure literacy progress (statewide assessments, DIBELS, AIMSweb) to track and measure student success
    7. If the state has a published dyslexia handbook in order to help direct parents and schools in what to expect and how to govern their students
    8. The number of Certified Academic Language Therapists (CALT) available in the state (less than 100 in the entire state = NO Points), Over 100 in the entire state = 1 Point)

What Parents are Saying

Robyn S.

“Damian was reading at a 3rd grade level in 8th grade. After completing the program with Ms. Pinchback, he finished high school and credits her with the fact that he graduated. He went on to college and was even awarded some scholarships. We couldn’t be more grateful.”

Allison C.

“…As a parent, it can be so scary when you get a dyslexia diagnosis. I feel like she took my hand and has been walking through this journey WITH us.”

Joy K.

“We struggled with therapy in the public school system. She wasn’t making progress because there were too many kids and not enough attention on my daughter. Switching to Dyslexia on Demand has been a godsend. She is flourishing and her growth rate has been unbelievable.”
