WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?
Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects approximately 10 percent of children. Those diagnosed with dyslexia have trouble connecting sounds to letter symbols. This affects the way children with dyslexia learn to read and spell. Fortunately, major strides have been made in understanding the language-based disorder, many of them at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Children with dyslexia can learn to read and be successful despite their learning differences.
In Judson ISD, students identified with dyslexia will receive a comprehensive intervention program. During the class, students will work with the five components of effective reading instruction: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary and Comprehension.
