The House of Representatives today cleared the way for the bipartisan Research Excellence and Advancements for Dyslexia Act (READ Act) (H.R. 3033) to be signed into law. The READ Act,
introduced by Science, Space, and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar

understanding of dyslexia, including better methods for early detection
and teacher training.
