Flour Bluff ISD Dyslexia Intervention Program - Reading by Design
The Region 4 ESC, in Houston, Reading by Design Program is a systematic, multisensory set of instructional routines which include content and pedagogically appropriate practices compiled from sources, such as Foundations for Literacy: Structures and Techniques for Multisensory Teaching of Basic Written English Language Skills by Aylett Royall Cox (1980). This program is aligned with research‐based practices for developing literacy and is designed for students with basic reading difficulties, such as dyslexia. This intervention follows an intensive, explicit, and cumulative design for remediation of reading and writing skills at all grade levels. Reading by Design includes all of the components of instruction and instructional approaches supported through research as cited in the The Dyslexia Handbook – Revised 2018: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders (pp. 40‐41).
Myths About Dyslexia
There are many misconceptions about dyslexia. Read "Dyslexia Myths Busted" to learn what about some myths and the true facts about dyslexia.
In support of dyslexia legislation passed by the Texas Legislature, the State Board of Education (SBOE) first approved the handbook, Dyslexia and Related Disorders: An Overview of State and Federal Requirements in January 1986. The SBOE approved new guidelines called the Revised Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders in 1992, which were revised in 1998.
The most recent version, The Dyslexia Handbook—2018 Update: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders (Dyslexia Handbook) implements statutory requirements added by the 85th Texas Legislature. The Dyslexia Handbook provides guidelines for school districts to follow as they identify and provide services for students with dyslexia and related disorders. Additionally, the handbook provides school districts and parents/guardians with information regarding the state’s dyslexia laws and their relation to these federal laws: the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504 as amended in 2008 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This handbook replaces all previous handbooks and guidelines.
