A child who struggles to read can quickly fall behind in school. Nearly every academic area includes some reading, and children might become confused or frustrated when they don’t get help to make sense of their schoolwork. Behavior challenges can result, and sometimes schools and parents struggle to understand why the student is having a hard time.
This video provides information about two primary ways that schools can support students with learning disabilities that impact literacy:
- Text-to-Speech (technology that provides audio-visual communication)
- Specially Designed Instruction (SDI)
Student learning accelerates when both strategies work together, and this video provides tips for making that happen.
Washington passed a law in 2018 requiring schools to screen young children for the indicators of weaknesses associated with dyslexia and support literacy across all grades. The law took effect in the 2021-22 school year. PAVE provides an article with more information: Dyslexia Screening and Interventions: State Requirements and Resources.
