Dyslexia services are offered each of the district’s six campuses. The district has 17 dyslexia specialists who have completed the necessary course work in the Neuhaus licensed dyslexia practitioner program. They primarily use the highly regarded Neuhaus dyslexia intervention program in a pull-out setting, while supplementing a variety of instructional models to meet the individual needs of the student with dyslexia within in the classroom, including pull-out reading instruction, reading and study skills classes, and classroom accommodations. The goal of these services is for students to gain mastery of skills and concepts to become independent, capable readers.
