Dear Rep. ————
Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) needs the support of at least 100 U.S. Congress members to bring to a vote H.Res.456 in the House Education and the Workforce committee. As one of your constituents concerned with the education of all of our children, I am counting on you to support this resolution.
(Insert your personal story here, if you have one that you’d like to share.)
Rep. Cassidy’s Resolution recognizes each major element of dyslexia: its prevalence (1 in 5); the cognitive and neurobiological bases; its unexpected nature and persistence; its profound impact on education and the critical need for action by schools.
Rep. Cassidy gets it and I hope that you do too. The Bipartisan Dyslexia Caucus which he co-founded was a major step forward and now the Dyslexia Resolution brings light and understanding, and hopefully action, to ensuring that children who are dyslexic receive the understanding and evidence-based programs and accommodations that they deserve. Please act now to support Resolution #456 –
