How schools are disrupting dyslexia
from District Administration Magazine
From Nov. 21:
Educators know that most dyslexic students will need interventions and accommodations throughout school, but best practices continue to evolve as more is learned about this reading disability. Addressing dyslexia should start with universal screening in kindergarten or first grade, if not sooner, says Marilyn Zecher, a language therapist who provides PD with the Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center in Maryland. "If we use a wait-to-fail model and we don't flag students until third grade, they're already three years behind," Zecher says.
