What Is Dyslexia?The International Dyslexia Association’s definition of dyslexia states:Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.
The purpose of the Fort Stockton ISD Dyslexia Program is to identify, assess, and serve students having dyslexia and related disorders that limit their ability in learning to read, write, or spell. This is accomplished by providing support to students and parents and training for teachers.
