The READ Act, signed by President Obama in 2016, devotes at least 25 million annually to research through the National Science Foundation. The bill requires a focus on best practices including curricula development and evidence based educational tools for students with dyslexia.
Schools are working to modify their existing RTI programs to better serve their students with dyslexia.
