Resources to Support the Georgia Dyslexia Pilot Districts
In 2020 SREB began working with the Region 6 Comprehensive Center at SERVE to support the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia’s dyslexia pilot program. Part of this support includes producing resources for the eight pilot districts, which can be downloaded below.
