Remember: Even 15 minutes a day of reading will help you become a better reader!

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.  Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.

 

The intent of the Edgewood ISD Dyslexia Services is to match specialized instruction to the individual needs of students with dyslexia and related disorders in order to provide opportunities for these students to develop their full potential as independent readers and prepare them to lead successful and productive lives.

For information regarding the services that Edgewood ISD provides, please contact the campus in which the student is enrolled.

Free audio books! If your child has been determined to have dyslexia, or has been screened and is at risk for dyslexia, they now have access to the Talking Book Program maintained by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.  The Talking Book Program provides students with reading disabilities the ability to borrow audiobooks free of charge, and includes over 100,000 titles, hundreds of which are in Spanish.
