Dear Representative ______:

 

I am writing to ask that you sign on as a sponsor to Representative Ed Neilson's legislation to extend the Dyslexia and Early Literacy Intervention Pilot Program. Extension of the pilot will show how students who began the program in kindergarten will perform on their third grade PSSA test.  Thus providing more evidence of the pilots success at reading intervention.  In addition, this legislation adds the definition of Dyslexia within the Public School Code(Chapter 14).  This would assist students with dyslexia by ensuring they receive the correct interventions. (Optional: add your personal story).
