Identifying Dyslexia

How does the Identification Process Work?

Decisions about dyslexia assessment, identification, and placement into the most appropriate educational setting are made by a committee of informed educators at the student's campus.  This process begins at the Campus Intervention Assistance Team level. If a decision to assess is made, the Section 504 procedures are followed. The assessment is conducted by a trained dyslexia teacher.

If your child is having difficulties in the areas of reading, writing, and spelling and exhibits some of the characteristics listed on the What is Dyslexia? page, contact your child's teacher, counselor, principal, or one of the Dyslexia and Intervention Teacher Specialists listed below.
