Guidance for districts (and parents) on dyslexia in Texas:
Technology Integration Students With Dyslexia:
This is specific to Texas but the resources and tools (largely without cost) can apply to all.
The Big Picture Movie: Rethinking Dyslexia is a great resource for sharing information about dyslexia with everyone, especially using these videos.
Progress monitoring resources:
Parent’s should investigate applying for college board (SAT), standardized testing accommodations for their child beginning in 9th grade, and depending on the goals of the student, aim for having accommodations approved and in place by the time any Advanced Placement exams are taken, as well as the PSAT. Note that current or additional testing (at your expense) may be required.
Be aware also that colleges often require updated testing when conducting reviews for accommodations (upon admission to the college). Develop a relationship with the disabilities service at college as soon as possible, before the first semester.
