F29 - Dyslexia—Legal Developments, the History, and the Future

Oct 26, 2018 3:15pm ‐ Oct 26, 2018 4:45pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00


This session reviews and analyzes the changing legal nature of dyslexia and public education from the 1930s to the present. It includes an analysis of recent cases from the U.S. Courts of Appeal and the two U.S. Supreme Court cases issued in 2017. By understanding this evolution of case law and legislative changes, participants become aware of future areas of probable legal conflict. Armed with that knowledge, participants leave the presentation better able to predict or avoid potential litigation, all the while understanding the expected outcome, in advance.

Learning Objective:

  • ADVOCACY AND LEGISLATION: Understand the laws and interpretations under various legislative motions and learn ways to implement advocacy efforts locally or at the state level.

Disclosure: Peter Wright and Pamela Darr Wright have authored publications that may be presented in the presentation. Peter Wright and Pamela Darr Wright have no relevant nonfinancial relationships to disclose.
