Students identified with dyslexia may be served through either Section 504 supports or IDEIA/Special Education depending on the how the disability is identified and the significance of the impact on educational opportunities. The committee, based on evaluation data, determines placement.
Intervention may look like direct instruction, using an Orton-Gillingham research-based program, for an individually determined amount of time. The committee addressing the student’s needs determines the frequency and duration of services.
Intervention may include reasonable accommodations in the classroom during instruction, practice, and assessment. Identified accommodations address the unique needs of the students. Documented in the plan developed for the student, the implementation of accommodations by the student’s teachers occurs in the instructional environment.
