Congressional Caucus Will Tackle Dyslexia
Two members of Congress with children who have dyslexia recently formed a new caucus devoted to the learning disability.
In a recent letter to fellow members of Congress, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., note that dyslexia is the most common disability.
The representatives said there is much work to be done in raising awareness about dyslexia and changing policy to create opportunities and remove barriers for the success of those with dyslexia.
Other congressional caucuses exist to rally around specific disabilities. One example is the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus, formed in 2008. And the Autism Caucus was created more than 10 years ago.
