Action: Working on legislation to assist students with dyscalculia
Submitted by: Representative Allen Fletcher
House District 130

"I am working on a bill that assists students in school that are affected by dyscalculia. Dyscalculia is a math disorder that involves difficulty learning or comprehending mathematics. I believe it is important to pass this legislation because dyscalculia is not currently recognized in law throughout the state of Texas, and students with this disorder are negatively affected since this disorder is not addressed correctly."
