NEW:  The Iowa Department of Education has released guidance on implementing 3rd grade retention in Iowa. Retention is set to take effect at the end of the 2017-18 school year - though it has been delayed in the past due to lack of funding for schools. 

NEW:  Read our update on the Iowa Administrative Rules for dyslexia and higher education.

Decoding Dyslexia Iowa is a grassroots movement driven by Iowa families and professionals concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within our public schools.  We aim to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and influence policymakers and educators on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Iowa public schools.

Decoding Dyslexia Iowa is a volunteer organization.  Learn more about who we are and our accomplishments here.
