California Dyslexia Guidelines

Assembly Bill (AB) 1369, Statutes of 2015, required the Superintendent of Public Instruction to develop program guidelines for dyslexia. The guidelines are to be used to assist regular education teachers, special education teachers, and parents to identify and assess pupils with dyslexia, and to plan, provide, evaluate, and improve educational services to pupils with dyslexia.  For purposes of writing the guidelines, the bill also required the California Department of Education (CDE) to consult with teachers, school administrators, other educational professionals, medical professionals, parents, and other professionals involved in the identification and education of pupils with dyslexia. The full text of AB 1369 is available on the California Legislative Information Website.
