Dyslexia is a common linguistic learning disorder related to problems with word decoding during reading due to difficulties with the processing of word sounds. Early reading interventions are effective at improving reading ability in those with dyslexia. In 2016, SB 638 created the Legislative Task Force on Dyslexia and modified RSMo § 167.950 to include requirements related to dyslexia. These requirements include dyslexia and reading difficulty screening in public schools, requiring that two hours of in-service training on dyslexia be made available to teachers, and requiring that schools provide classroom support. Several bills have been introduced during the 2022 legislative session that would expand requirements related to reading and enact many of the recommendations made by the Dyslexia Task Force (HB 1556, HB 1980, SB 681, & SB 1076).
