Senator Vogel speaking before the 2015 Senate Session in support of SB1386 

If you haven’t heard by now, let us be the first to share with you that Senate Bill 1386, introduced by Senator Jill Vogel, regarding teacher training on dyslexia has been voted on and passed in the Virginia Senate by a unanimous vote of 38 yes to 0 no.
What’s next?
First: THANK THE SENATORS
Take a minute to thank your Senator!!!  No guess work here…every senator in our great state voted in support of this bill. A quick email of thanks will let them know how much you appreciate their support! Here is a link to a quick listing of our Senators.
Second: CONTACT YOUR HOUSE of DELEGATES REPRESENTATIVE
Call and/or email your Delegate to let them know that dyslexia is important to your family and you would like them ‘to sponsor SB 1386’.  This means that they sign on in support of the bill, even before it gets to the Education Committee Review.
What you need to know:
It’s WAY EASIER than it sounds!  Use this link to identify your Delegate.
Call their Richmond office number, since they’re in session now!  And spend 3-5 minutes letting them know that dyslexia is important to your family and you would like them ‘to sponsor SB1386’!  THAT’S IT!  EASY!
