Two prominent members of the U.S. Congress have formed the Congressional Dyslexia Caucus to raise awareness of dyslexia and help foster policy change for people with dyslexia. The caucus was formed just weeks ago by Rep. Bill Cassidy (LA-06) and Rep. Pete Stark (CA-13). As parents of children working to triumph over dyslexia, they are acutely aware of the many hurdles they must overcome to reach their full potential.
Please take a moment to urge the representatives from your area to join the caucus and support Reps. Cassidy and Stark in their efforts.

Please Join the Bipartisan Congressional Dyslexia Caucus
Dear Congressman/Congresswoman (last name):
As a member of the International Dyslexia Association, I am writing to ask that you consider joining the Congressional Dyslexia Caucus, formed to work across party lines to educate members and the public about dyslexia. There is much work to be done in raising awareness about dyslexia and making policy changes that create opportunity for all dyslexics and remove barriers to success. I urge you to join Rep. Bill Cassidy and Rep. Pete Stark in this effort today.
