Dyslexia resolution passed by Kansas House

TOPEKA – The State Board of Education should try to identify children with reading disabilities, such as dyslexia, early in their education careers, a resolution passed by the state House said.

House Concurrent Resolution 5015 passed on Wednesday on a vote of 122-3.

The resolution also directs the board to ensure that the diagnostics tests used in Kansas include dyslexia and that the board review programs that school districts implement.

Additionally, the board is directed to ensure parents have access to the information and should report back to the Legislature by Dec. 31, 2009.
