Due in part to advocacy work by Hoosier parents and educators, Indiana’s legislators passed Senate Bill 217 last year. This law requires schools to screen students for dyslexia. Dyslexia is a type of learning disability that primarily affects how intelligent kids, adolescents and adults process language while reading, spelling or writing. This new law went into effect in July 2018. Dr. Anna Merrill, CRG child psychologist, has co-authored a news brief about this important new school service along with colleagues at IU’s School of Medicine.
