Dyslexia Services

Dyslexia

The Klein ISD dyslexia program is designed to provide short-term reading intervention for children identified as having characteristics of dyslexia. Intervention services are offered to qualifying students in all grades. The components of instruction include explicit, systematic, and sequential multi-sensory instruction. Klein teachers are trained in dyslexia intervention strategies, which target the five areas of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The goal of the dyslexia intervention program is for students to gain accurate and fluent reading.

 

Student Eligibility

Klein ISD takes a proactive approach in identifying reading disabilities, such as dyslexia, through early identification and intervention. This is accomplished through the Response to Intervention (RtI) model. During the course of the school year, students struggling in the area of reading may be referred for dyslexia assessment by the campus-based Collaborative Planning Team. The parent may also initiate a request for referral for dyslexia assessment at any time. Parental consent forms and parent questionnaires are required to initiate the testing. Parents of elementary students should contact the campus Reading Specialist. Parents of intermediate and high school students should contact their child's counselor. Upon completion of testing, the District Dyslexia Committee will review all data and determine eligibility for dyslexia services. Testing procedures are in accordance with The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 Section 504.
