October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

Dyslexia affects one in five people, regardless of race, gender, age, or socioeconomic status. Nancy Duggan, Executive Director of Decoding Dyslexia Massachusetts and her colleagues joined me in the State House today to talk about literacy and Dyslexia Awareness Month. I appreciated her kind words about my work to include literacy grant funding for dyslexia in this year's final budget.

Governor Charlie Baker has proclaimed October as Dyslexia Awareness Month. A proper diagnosis of dyslexia can identify those who need extra help.
