Dyslexia Evaluation Decision
A parent is contacted when a student is suspected of possibly having dyslexia or a related disorder and may need intervention services. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss our concerns for the student, examine available options, and permit the parent to choose a course of action.
The meeting will consist of a Parent, Administrator, Teacher, and a Specialist. At that time the parent may choose to have their child receive a Full Individual Evaluation, they may choose a to give consent for Dyslexia testing only, or the parent may decide not to have any testing at this time.

The Talking Book Program (TBP) provides free library services to qualifying Texans with visual, physical, or reading disabilities.

The International Dyslexia Association defines dyslexia in their comprehensive
"IDA Dyslexia Handbook: What Every Family Should Know" as:

"Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge."
