PSU to begin global dyslexia initiative

Inspired by a former prison inmate who went on to become an Emmy-nominated actor, Pittsburg State University’s Center for READing is joining the Dyslexia Awareness Foundation to implement the most ambitious dyslexia screening and remedial reading intervention initiative to date.

The initiative will begin this spring in schools, jails, prisons, and community centers throughout the U.S. and in selected territories around the world. Coordinators say it is designed to improve literacy for children, teens, adults, and incarcerated persons, and could reduce crime and recidivism.
