{Tuesday To-Do List} a dyslexia resolution and changing VA driver’s licenses

Author’s note: I know it’s Friday. But, I had this written and scheduled to go live on Tuesday and it didn’t publish. I didn’t want to wait until next Tuesday, so here you go.

For this Tuesday’s post, I am reposting two things I received from my readers–one on Facebook and one on Twitter. The Tuesday To-Do list is your action items for the week–simple things you can do to advocate and lobby for causes for our kids. This week’s issues are for Virginia residents and for everyone.

I received this one on January 10:

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressmen Bill Cassidy, M.D., the Co-Chair of the House Dyslexia Caucus, submitted a resolution calling for the House to acknowledge the impact of dyslexia and urge schools and educational agencies to address its impact on students. Dr. Cassidy released the following statement:

“Dyslexia affects millions of Americans, including many students. We know that many with dyslexia are among our brightest and most successful. If dyslexia is identified in elementary school and the appropriate resources are given to these children, America can produce more teachers, more scientists and more entrepreneurs. This resolution pushes schools and educational agencies to address this challenge and provide evidence-based solutions for dyslexic students.”

The second one concerns Virginia residents. It’s about adding more information to a driver’s license or state issued ID card, which I think is a fantastic idea. Here is the tweet so that you Virginia readers can either read more or retweet it:

As always, thank you for your participation. Please share with your friends!

From time to time this blog may generate compensation through free products, sponsorship, advertising/ads, and links. But trust me, it's not 'retire early' kind of money and most of it goes back to keeping the blog online and fast, as well as lobbying trips for special needs kids. Any form of compensation will in no way influence my opinion or content of the blog post-I only work with brands that I already use and love, or think that will benefit kids with special needs. I am committed to providing honest and open opinion and commentary. I reserve the right to decline offers of advertising and sponsorships if it is not consistent with the goals and philosophy of this blog and its readers (and I turn down way more than I accept!). For inquiries about advertising or product reviews, please send an email to info@adayinourshoes.com. This blog is intended to offer general advice and should not be construed as either legal advice, medical advice or state or federal policy. For your family's needs, you may need more specific help from a local professional. A reminder that terminology and procedures may vary from state to state.
