Meaningful Accountability for Students with Dyslexia

This issue of Perspectives on Language and Literacy examines the meaningful accountability for students with dyslexia
in the context of federal education laws—both the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and the Individuals with
Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004).

The issue was developed by guest theme co-editors Candace Cortiella, Director at The Advocacy Institute, and Rachel Quenemoen, Senior Research Fellow and national technical assistance team leader at the National Center on Educational Outcomes.
