There are numerous ways parents may participate in daily support of their child’s dyslexia program. Providing a safe, risk-free environment at home can eliminate anxiety that a child might experience when homework is being completed. Consistency in completion of daily homework, building your child’s self-esteem by supporting daily learning, and helping to establish an independent attitude will benefit your child not only during dyslexia therapy, but also throughout his/her life as he/she learns how to be a successful learner.

What factors are used to determine when a child EXITS from dyslexia therapy?

(1) completion of curriculum; (2) student demonstrating success in grade level material: (3) passing STAAR; (4) recommendation by the dyslexia teacher; (5) parent request; (6) moved from BISD; and (7) lack of appropriate progress within the dyslexia curriculum.
How will my child be supported once they have exited from their daily dyslexia instruction?
Campus dyslexia teachers track students who have exited the dyslexia program for a period of time. Tracking is a way to support teachers and students within the classroom setting. This tracking can look different for each student depending on the student’s needs. Tracking can take the form of checking the student’s grades each six/nine weeks, talking to classroom teacher(s) and/or meeting with the individual student informally, etc.
