Identifying Dyslexia in Students

When a student with dyslexia is having difficulty with aspects of schoolwork that are related to his/her disability, a parent or guardian may request that an accommodation plan be developed to alleviate the difficulties posed by dyslexia. Talking with the teacher is the best place to start in making this need known. The teacher may direct a parent to the school counselor or 504 coordinator for the campus.

People with dyslexia often will have difficulty with the following:

  • Learning to speak
  • Learning letters and their sounds
  • Organizing written and spoken language
  • Memorizing number facts
  • Reading quickly enough to comprehend
  • Persisting with and comprehending longer reading assignments
  • Spelling
