Informational Guidebook on Dyslexia and Related Conditions

Illustrated teacher and student with book

Required by 2019 Wisconsin Act 86, Wisconsin's Informational Guidebook on Dyslexia and Related Conditions was created through collaboration between an advisory committee created by Act 86 and DPI. Feedback was solicited from advisory committee members at several points in the drafting process. In addition, the guidebook was available for 30 days of public comment.

Per Act 86, the informational guidebook discusses screening, instruction and intervention, and resources that can support improved learning for school-aged individuals with characteristics of dyslexia. The audience for the information is broad and includes but is not limited to parents and families, educators, interventionists or reading teachers, and educational leaders.
