Demystifying the Dyslexia Dilemma in Texas: Understanding Expectations for Assessment, Intervention, and Monitoring Progress for Students with Reading Difficulties


There is much confusion among school based practitioners, clinicians, and parents regarding expectations for supporting students with Dyslexia and learning disabilities in Texas public schools. This session is designed to provide a historical review of Dyslexia in our state while focusing on the new era of providing assessment and interventions to students with reading difficulties and disabilities. Included in the session will be facilitated conversations regarding new research on the effects of “unfinished” learning as it relates to the ongoing effects of the COVID 19 pandemic as well as shifts in the current TEA guidelines for providing screening, assessment, and accelerated/remedial instructional reading interventions to students.
