In this project you will investigate the policies and practices related to dyslexia diagnosis and at the state, district and school levels. A set of key questions to address are included, though you may also include other relevant information not addressed by these questions. This assignment will be comprised of the following three parts. Each part should be included under a separate subheading. (I only need help with Part A and C )
