Georgia State Senate passes Bill to help dyslexic students
The state Senate unanimously passed legislation that would help identify dyslexia in students. Sabrina Burse spoke to the Houston County School district about Senate Bill 48 to see what role it plays in the education of students.
The International Dyslexia Association says people with dyslexia can have trouble recognizing words, spelling, and decoding. That can affect the way those students process the way language is heard or spoken, which can lead to problems in reading comprehension.
Senate Bill 48 requires the State Board of Education to develop policies for figuring out which students have dyslexia in order to get them the resources they need to succeed.
