Bill creating dyslexia guidebook heads to state Senate

Lawmakers are one step closer to creating a guidebook for parents and school districts to help students with dyslexia. A bill passed the State Assembly Tuesday which wouldrequire the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) to create a handbook on how to detect and assist students with dyslexia and other reading conditions.
