What is Dyslexia?

  • Mastering the ability to read, spell, and write is fundamental to achieving academic success.  Students with dyslexia struggle with those skills despite receiving the same classroom instruction that benefits most students and having adequate intelligence.  
     
     
    The Texas Education Code § 38.003 defines dyslexia as “a disorder of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spell, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and sociocultural opportunity.”
     
     
    The Houston Independent School District is committed to providing students identified with dyslexia with instruction that is individualized, intensive, and includes phonetic methods and a variety of writing and spelling components as recommended in the Texas Education Agency’s Dyslexia Handbook.
