The Decoding Dyslexia - Park Cities (DDPC) is open to all families who reside in Highland Park ISD boundaries, regardless of where a student attends school. While many families have a student who has been identified as dyslexic, many who attend DDPC events are seeking information and support as they begin the evaluation process.

DDPC hosts regular parent meetings and events to provide information on a variety of topics related to dyslexia and other learning differences. The events also give families an opportunity to learn from and support each other.  Please feel free to contact the parent leaders listed below using the PTA Directory or through the contact form on this website.

DDPC is led by neighborhood parents and also benefits from the support provided by professional educators and volunteers with Decoding Dyslexia Texas. As a member of the Texas Dyslexia Coalition, volunteers with DDPC take an active role in advocating for dyslexic students throughout Texas and the United States.

Decoding Dyslexia – Texas is a grassroots movement driven by Texas families concerned with the limited access to educational interventions for dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities within our schools. Our mission is to raise dyslexia awareness, empower families to support their children, and inform policy-makers on best practices to identify, remediate and support students with dyslexia in Texas schools.

Decoding Dyslexia has a strong history of working collaboratively with parents and professionals.
