Unfortunately, the suggestions in the Feb. 14 article (“Is the Government Failing College-Bound Students?”) for improving chances of the College Board granting accommodations proved ineffective. Alternatively, we all need to contact our congressional representatives to request that they join the bipartisan Dyslexia Caucus to encourage the Department of Justice to require the College Board and other testing agencies to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act (“Dear Congressperson, I urge you to join the Congressional Dyslexia Caucus so that individuals with learning disabilities such as dyslexia may receive appropriate accommodations from the various testing and licensing agencies in our country.”)
To join, please contact Jeff Hild (jeff.hild@mail.house.gov) in the office of Rep. Pete Stark, or David Pulliam (david.pulliam@mail.house.gov) in the office of Rep. Bill Cassidy.
