2019 Act 86
On February 5th, 2020, Governor Tony Evers signed AB110 into law. This Act provides a Guidebook to be accessible on every district website to help with dyslexi and other related reading conditions. Specifically, the Guidebook can support conversations about how a local equitable multi-level system of support (E-MLSS) serves learners when they struggle with reading, including those with characteristics of dyslexia and related conditions. Guidance about convening
and engaging in these conversations can be found at https://dpi.wi.gov/sites/default/files/imce/reading/dyslexia_guide_FINAL_8_2_21.pdf.

Experience a Hands-on Dyslexia Simulation
Check out the TV interview that caught part of our March 21, 2013 simulation of what it might feel like to have dyslexia: http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/Understanding-dyslexia-by-walking-in-their-shoes-199472921.html.

This wonderful simulation can be held at your location as well! Contact us to learn details about hosting the Experience Dyslexia Simulation.
