Waller Independent School DistrictWISD Dyslexia services are designed by the Region IV Education Center specifically for those students who have a difficulty “of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spell, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and socio-cultural opportunity.” (The Dyslexia Handbook, Texas Education Agency, Feb. 2014)
Dyslexia services include the necessary components for students diagnosed with dyslexia: multi-sensory based instruction that includes phonemic awareness (segmenting, blending and manipulating sounds in spoken language), graphophonemic knowledge (phonics), language structure, and linguistic patterns and processes. A variety of writing and spelling components are also included.
Dyslexia classes are limited in size to assure individualized attention and success for each student.
