About Us

Decoding Dyslexia is a parent-led  National grassroots movement of families, educators, and specialists who are concerned with the limited access to appropriate educational approaches given with Fidelity and integrity as intended for struggling readers, other language-based disabilities, and dyslexia in our schools. Our goals are to raise awareness, empower families to support their children, and inform legislators about best practices to identify, educate and support students struggling with reading in Wisconsin.

We support families of struggling readers, share resources, and strategies which are helpful. Every child must learn to read so they can reach their full potential!

Mission
