More than 30 million adults in the United States cannot read or write above a third-grade level. Pennsylvania has been a pioneer in addressing the literacy crisis. In 2014, Pennsylvania launched its Dyslexia Screening and Early Literacy Intervention Pilot Program, which established a three-year early literacy intervention and dyslexia pilot program using evidence-based screening, evidence-based instruction, and intervention for students found to be at risk for early reading deficiencies and dyslexia. The Reading Early and Addressing Dyslexia (READ) Act Act is modeled after this pilot program.
