AN ACT to establish a pilot  program  to  provide  early  screening  and
  intervention services for children with risk factors for dyslexia

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. (a) The commissioner of education  is  hereby  directed  to
establish  a  pilot  program to provide early screening and intervention
services for children with risk  factors  for  dyslexia,  including  low
phonemic awareness. The commissioner shall select three school districts
to participate in the pilot program, one of which shall be located in an
urban  setting, one of which shall be located in a suburban setting, and
one of which shall be located in a rural setting.  Any  school  district
selected to participate in the pilot program may establish a partnership
with  a  regional  library  or  library system for purposes of the pilot
program. To be considered for the pilot program, a school district shall
submit a proposal to the commissioner which:
  (1) identifies a method of screening children for low phonemic  aware-
ness and other risk factors for dyslexia;
  (2)  provides for the enrollment of children identified as having risk
factors for dyslexia in a reading program staffed by teachers trained in
multisensory structured language programs; and
  (3) includes a methodology for evaluating the effects of  the  reading
program on the children's identified risk factors.
  (b) The goal of the pilot program shall be to demonstrate and evaluate
the effectiveness of early reading assistance programs for children with
risk  factors  for  dyslexia  and to evaluate whether those programs can
reduce future special education costs.
  (c) The commissioner shall establish guidelines and procedures for the
pilot program. The commissioner shall  consult  with  the  international
dyslexia  association  or  any  other nationally recognized organization
