California Dyslexia Initiative
The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) was selected as the project lead on the California Dyslexia Initiative (CDI) and is working in partnership with the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Dyslexia Center to build capacity and resources across California’s educational systems to address the needs of struggling readers and students with dyslexia.
Educator resources are being developed, including videos, articles, webinars, and professional development modules to foster a deeper understanding of dyslexia and supporting students with learning difficulties. Materials will be published on the CDI website as they become available.
SCOE was selected by the California State Board of Education (SBE), California Department of Education (CDE), and the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) to administer the California Dyslexia Initiative (CDI). Learn more about CDI.
