Dyslexia: Legislation a plus for Miss.

From the Enterprise-Journal, McComb, on dyslexia legislation:

One of the good pieces of legislation to come out of this year’s session was signed into law by Gov. Phil Bryant.

It requires kindergartners or first- graders to be tested for dyslexia, a reading disorder that occurs when the brain does not properly recognize and process certain symbols like letters in the alphabet.

The new law also gives dyslexic students in the first six grades the ability to move to a new public or non-public school if it is determined the student can be better served by the transfer.
