Dyslexia on the National Agenda
A letter from YCDC Co-Directors, Drs. Sally & Bennett Shaywitz



We have been receiving a great many inquiries asking for information about two Congressional resolutions: Rep. Bill Cassidy's House Resolution 456 and Rep. Joyce Beatty's House Resolution 623.  


The questions range: "Why two resolutions?" or "Do they have the same or different purposes?" People concerned with improving the lives of children who are dyslexic-especially in terms of diagnosing and providing effective interventions in schools-asked, "Are one or both resolutions specifically focused on dyslexia and on targeting these school goals?"  


Responding to these queries, with the help of several of you who have contacted us, we reviewed the resolutions to share with you. 


-Drs. Sally & Bennett Shaywitz

Dyslexia is defined by an unexpected difficulty in learning to read. Dyslexia takes away an individual's ability to read quickly and automatically, and to retrieve spoken words easily, but it does not dampen their creativity and ingenuity.
