Three Harry Potter books have been released for fans who have dyslexia.

The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Quidditch Through the Ages, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been adjusted to make them easier for people who have trouble reading.

The books use large fonts, clear captions and have detailed descriptions with lots of pictures.

They've also been designed to help people who are vision impaired.

The bill would require the Georgia Department of Education to create a dyslexia informational guide for parents and each board of education to provide additional learning opportunities for dyslexic students within their county. Under the law, supplementary training would also be required for teachers to better educate dyslexics.

IEP and Related Services Resources

The Individualized Education Program (IEP) serves as the framework for determining the meaning of the term “free appropriate public education” in the least restrictive environment, a term frequently referenced in the IDEA. IEPs must be developed and reviewed annually and must be in effect at the beginning of each school year. The IEP may be reviewed more than once a year if the parent or the district requests a review.

Everyone learns differently. Without the right tools, teachers can't ensure that every child in their classroom has the ability to read. IMSE is fighting to change that.

There's a misconception that Orton-Gillingham is only a one-on-one tutoring program for children with dyslexia. A multi-sensory approach makes reading easier for all children, not only those with dyslexia. When used in the classroom, Orton-Gillingham makes all children better readers.
