DYSLEXIA BILLS PASSES BY SENATE

On Thursday the New jersey Senate passed a group of bills designed to improve diagnosis and treatment of children with dyslexia. An Ocean City woman and her daughter with dyslexia have been lobbying for the legislation for nearly eight years. Samantha Ravelli, now a high school junior with dyslexia, was in Trenton to assist Senator Jeff Van Drew with his vote on the bills. The package passed the Assembly in April and will now go to the governor for his signature.
