Representative Burlison, Representative Wood, and Senator Sifton have been working hard on behalf of kids with dyslexia in Jefferson City. Representative Burlison introduced HB921 and Senator Sifton introduced SB548 that creates the “Legislative Task Force on Dyslexia” and requires the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to employ a dyslexia specialist and develop professional development programs for schools. Representative Wood and Senator Sifton introduced HB731 and SB468 that requires each public school to test students for dyslexia and related disorders and provide treatment. Thank you Representative Burlison, Representative Wood, and Senator Sifton!
