This is the Michigan Regulation which covers dyslexia:
R 340.1713 "Specific learning disability" defined; determination.
Rule 13. (1) "Specific learning disability" means a disorder in 1 or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do
mathematical calculations. The term includes such conditions as perceptual impairments, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia. The term does not
include children who have learning problems that are primarily the result of a visual, hearing, or motor impairment, of a cognitive impairment, of an emotional impairment, of autism, or of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.
(2) The individualized education program team may determine that a child has a specific learning disability if the child does not achieve commensurate with his or her age and ability levels in 1 or more of the areas listed in this subrule, when provided with learning experiences appropriate for the child's age and ability levels, and if the multidisciplinary evaluation team finds that a child has a severe discrepancy between achievement and intellectual ability in 1 or more of the following areas:
(a) Oral expression.
(b) Listening comprehension.
(c) Written expression.
