Dyslexia

The McKinney ISD Dyslexia program provides assessment and intensive interventions to those students identified as being dyslexic. The areas of intervention include: phonological awareness, sound-symbol association, syllabication, orthography, morphology, syntax, reading comprehension, and reading fluency. Intervention for students with dyslexia is multisensory, systematic and cumulative, explicit, diagnostic, synthetic and analytical. Students who meet the MISD criteria for services are served on their home campus by teachers specifically trained in Dyslexia.

If you suspect that your child may need to be evaluated for dyslexia, please contact your campus administrator regarding your concerns. They will be able to assist you with this process.

All kindergarten and first grade students are screened for being at risk for dyslexia. All parents are given written notification after the screening to share the results of the screening process.

Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.003 defines dyslexia and related disorders in the following way:

“Dyslexia” means a disorder of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spelling, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and sociocultural opportunity.
