A standardized one-size-fits all reading program will not work for children with dyslexia. A reading program needs to be chosen based upon the unique and individual needs of a particular student.
If a child isn’t learning in a particular program, that program doesn’t "work." The school must provide a different program that does work.
The special education law is based on the fact that children learn differently.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find out what happened when the school failed to teach two students with dyslexia to read. Learn what the law requires so that schools provide services individualized to meet the unique needs of each child.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
