I got an independent evaluation. My son has dyslexia. I gave the evaluation report to the teacher, who told me that they do not recognize dyslexia.
Despite the fact that dyslexia is a specific learning disability, some school districts claim that they are not required to provide these students with a special education program that meets their unique needs.
The word, dyslexia has always been recognized as a learning disability in federal law.
In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you will learn that dyslexia is a specific learning disability under IDEA. Find out when and how to get help for a child with reading problems.
We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.
