This post has been corrected and revised to reflect the following: The House Finance Committee recently approved funding for a position to work with the N.H. Dept. of Education to fulfill aspects of the state's new "Dyslexia Law." The position was not originally in the Governor's version of the budget.
The full House votes on this next week, and, after that, the state senate will makes its own budgetary decision on the position. For more, read here.
Once described as " word blindness," dyslexia affects a person's ability to read accurately and fluently. It's surprisingly common, but early screening and intervention can make a major difference. The new law requires school districts do just that.
