About Decoding Dyslexia Maryland
Decoding Dyslexia Maryland is a grassroots organization driven by Maryland families and educators who recognize the need for conversations with our school districts and policy makers regarding reading and dyslexia. In addition to raising awareness, providing resources and advocating for the dyslexia community, we work to make systemic changes in our K-12 school and university teacher prep systems to improve literacy instruction for all students.
