PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island lawmaker is asking for input on how well the state teaches children with dyslexia.

Rep. Eileen Naughton, a Warwick Democrat, leads a special legislative commission charged with making recommendations about the educational needs of children with dyslexia and reading disabilities.

She’s asking Rhode Island residents affected by dyslexia to speak at a public hearing scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Warwick Public Library.

The legislative commission includes members of the Rhode Island Department of Education, elected officials and parents.

The commission is also accepting written testimony.
