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:
- Early screening for dyslexia.
- Evidence-based remediation programs for students who show signs of dyslexia.
- Teacher training on dyslexia, its warning signs and accommodation strategies that can help students with dyslexia.
- 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.
