Dyslexia Identification and Programming

Referral and Evaluation for Dyslexia:

  • A referral by a parent or district professional concerning a child suspected of having dyslexia begins with the campus instructional intervention teacher and the campus designee for §504.
  • An evaluation includes standardized testing, review of reading data. Although not required, if the parent has information from a private provider, consideration of the data is a part of the evaluation process.
  • Students eligible for services may be considered under §504 for direct instruction and/or accommodations.
  • If there is suspicion of other disabilities, the committee makes a request for further evaluation through IDEIA/Special Education

Dyslexia Intervention
  • Students identified with dyslexia may be served through either Section 504 supports or IDEIA/Special Education depending on the how the disability is identified and the significance of the impact on educational opportunities. The committee, based on evaluation data, determines placement.
  • Intervention may look like direct instruction, using the DIP research-based program, for an individually determined amount of time. The committee addressing the student’s needs determines the frequency and duration of services.
  • Intervention may include reasonable accommodations in the classroom during instruction, practice, and assessment. Identified accommodations address the unique needs of the students. Documented in the plan developed for the student, the implementation of accommodations by the student’s teachers occurs in the instructional environment.
