Requires the State Board to develop and distribute to each school board guidance on appropriate intervention strategies for students diagnosed with dyslexia or other reading disabilities. Provides that, in the event that a student is determined to exhibit potential indicators of dyslexia or another reading disability, the school board shall ensure that the student receives a comprehensive assessment for the learning disorder and, in the event that a diagnosis is confirmed, the school board shall provide appropriate intervention strategies to the student. Sets forth requirements concerning professional development related to reading disabilities, the incorporation of the International Dyslexia Association's definition of dyslexia into administrative rules, and an additional written test for certain educator licensure candidates. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
