The Virginia General Assembly in 2016 mandated that all educators seeking initial licensure or renewal of a license complete awareness training, provided by the Virginia Department of Education, on the indicators of dyslexia, evidence­ based intervention, and accommodations for dyslexia.  The 2017 Virginia General Assembly required that each local school board employing a reading specialist shall have training in identification of and the appropriate interventions, accommodations and teaching techniques for students with dyslexia or a related disorder and shall serve as an advisor.  This brochure provides a synopsis of dyslexia, evidence-based intervention, and accommodations for individuals with dyslexia, and organizations dedicated to supporting parents, educators, and learners dealing with dyslexia.
