WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU SUSPECT YOUR CHILD MAY BE DYSLEXIC?
First and foremost, discuss your concerns with your child’s classroom teacher. He or she may be able to reassure you that your child is making appropriate progress, or may share your concerns with your child’s progress. If you continue to be concerned about your child’s progress, contact your child’s principal in writing, expressing your concerns.
All referrals are processed through the Response to Intervention team (RTI). The RTI team will meet and recommend intervention strategies for the classroom teacher to use in order to help your child. Based on the results of these interventions, your child may or may not be referred on to dyslexia testing, Section 504 or Special Education.
If your child is currently eligible for either Section 504 or Special Education, please contact the appropriate committee with your concerns.
