Becoming a competent reader and writer is an essential foundation for education and for life. Building this foundation and establishing the assurance that all students will be reading on or above grade level is a priority for the Como-Pickton CISD.

Children learn to read, write, and spell in different ways. A balanced reading program should meet the needs of most students. Students who do not learn to read, write, and spell in spite of a broad, balanced reading program are offered a variety of alternative strategies and support. If these instructional strategies and additional support are not successful, the school may consider evaluation in the area of dyslexia or other related disorders. Students who show signs of dyslexia may need intervention to be successful in school.

The guidelines and procedures adopted have been designed to correlate to the identification and instruction of students with dyslexia and related disorders adopted by the State Board of Education, mandated by the state of Texas, and presented in The Dyslexia Handbook: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders. This document is intended to provide districts with guidelines for developing written procedures and has been a consistent resource in the development of the CPCISD’s dyslexia intervention.

CPCISD is committed to supporting all students to ensure educational success. Dyslexia support services are provided at all grade levels.
