Idaho mom fights to improve dyslexia legislation and literacy in Idaho

Colorful letters sit on a white background.

Idaho Mom Robin Zikmund knew her son was different at an early age. While his peers were reading by the third grade, her son was still struggling.

Eventually her son was diagnosed with dyslexia, but Robin wanted to do more than just have a diagnosis for her son.

So she founded the Idaho chapter of Decoding Dyslexia, which has helped make a significant impact on dyslexia legislation and literacy in Idaho through the science of reading.

Robin joined Idaho Matters to talk more.
