A new bill would require prospective elementary school teachers in Indiana to be able to identify dyslexia in their students.
Research suggests dyslexia is among the most common learning disabilities, affecting ten to twenty percent of the population. The precise number is unknown since so many people go undiagnosed.
House Bill 1108 would require new elementary school teachers to be able to recognize learning disabilities that affect reading, including dyslexia.
Republican Representative Woody Burton authored the bill.
