Decoding Dyslexia Alberta

Advocate. Educate. Legislate.

Decoding Dyslexia Alberta is a grassroots organization driven by Alberta families and educators who recognize the need for conversations with our school districts and policy makers regarding dyslexia.

Our Mission: We strive to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children, and improve resources for students with dyslexia in Alberta schools.

Our Vision: We envision a day when students with dyslexia are identified early in school and receive the appropriate evidence-based reading instruction and support that they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Decoding Dyslexia Alberta is advocating for:

  1. Early screening for dyslexia.
  2. Evidence-based remediation programs for students who show signs of dyslexia.
  3. Teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and accommodation strategies that can help students with dyslexia.
  4. Access to appropriate assistive technologies for students with dyslexia.

We hope to create a collective voice in Alberta and across the country with one mission – to improve awareness and educational resources for students with dyslexia.
