TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A bill in the senate would require schools to offer 90 minutes of specialized instruction per day outside the student's regular classroom time. That instruction would take place in smaller groups or one-on-one.
Some parents support it because they say many children with dyslexia go undiagnosed and that if they are diagnosed, those students often don't receive the specialized instruction they need.
Opponents say the bill is redundant and a violation of federal law.
Dyslexia is a learning condition that involves difficulty with reading and spelling. Under federal law, students with dyslexia qualify for special education services.
