District Dyslexia Plan
In the state of Texas, students who continue to struggle with reading, despite appropriate or intensified instruction, are provided organized systems of reading support. Some students struggle during early reading acquisition while others do not struggle until the later grades, even at the postsecondary level. Here they face more complex language demands (i.e. reading textbooks, academic texts, and other print material). For many struggling readers, the difficulty may be due to dyslexia. Dyslexia is found in all student populations and languages. Some students with dyslexia may be Emergent BIlinguals (EBs) who struggle with reading not only in English, but in their native language as well.
Springtown ISD has created a Dyslexia Plan to provide guidelines and procedures for early identification of and instruction for students with dyslexia. The plan may be accessed below.
