Decoding Dyslexia is a network of parent-led grassroots movements across the country concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia within the public education system. Decoding Dyslexia aims to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia.
In 2019, the Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina became a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization. The corporation’s primary purpose is to improve the educational experiences for students with dyslexia through increased awareness, community empowerment and direct support and instruction.
