School and Community Advocacy

Every child with dyslexia needs classroom accommodations, and/or extra educational services in school. Because of this, advocating for the accommodations and services in your child's school can be an intimidating and daunting task. Dyslexia Pros understands this, and we are here to help support parents in advocating for their child's educational rights. Whether it's obtaining a 504 accommodation plan or an IEP, a Dyslexia Pros expert is here to help answer your questions, attend meetings, and help you every step of the way.

Arizona does have several dyslexia laws as well as a dyslexia handbook for parents and teachers. You may view these here: AZEDDyslexia

 

Here are some great resources to help you become more knowledgeable on IDEA 2004, section 504 law, and Arizona's dyslexia laws so you can become the best advocate for your child!
