Reps. Stark & Cassidy Form Bi-Partisan Dyslexia Caucus

In 2012 Representatives Pete Stark and Bill Cassidy launched the U.S. Congressional Dyslexia Caucus.  The goal of this bi-partisan group is to raise awareness about dyslexia and to ensure that every dyslexic child and adult has a chance to read, to learn, and to demonstrate and realize his or her full potential. "Dyslexia is a major learning disability which affects nearly 20% of Americans," said Congressman Cassidy.  "By raising awareness of dyslexia we can change the way we educate our children and assist millions of children get on the path to success."

"My motivation in starting the Congressional Dyslexia Caucus with Rep. Bill Cassidy is both personal and professional,” said Congressman Stark.  “My family has learned about the disability—and the misunderstandings that surround it—through my young son’s experiences with dyslexia.”

Below is a list of members of Congress who have joined the caucus. If you don’t see your representative, we urge you to write or call and ask your congressman to join the caucus. You can find out who your congressional representative is by clicking here.
