Dyslexia

CISD provides screening, assessment and programming for dyslexia and dyslexia-related disorders as outlined in the state dyslexia handbook.

Screening

All kindergarten and first grade students are screened for dyslexia. First grade students are screened in December and kindergarten students are screened beginning in April.
 

Assessment

There are two options.
  1. A student may be assessed through the general education 504 program. This free assessment is narrowly focused to identify the characteristics of dyslexia and/or dyslexia related disorders.
  2. A student may be evaluated through special education. This free evaluation is comprehensive in scope and includes assessments for dyslexia and related disorders in addition to other learning disabilities. 

Programming

Once an assessment/evaluation is completed, the appropriate team, either the ARD team through special education, or the general education 504 committee will determine the programming. 
 
To request an assessment or evaluation, please contact your child's teacher, school counselor, or school administrator.
 
If you have questions about dyslexia, please contact the district director of dyslexia at 830-221-2179 or email.
