Birdville ISD Dyslexia Program
Birdville ISD serves students identified with dyslexia in kindergarten through grade 12 using research-based practices and curricula that meet the critical, evidence-based components of dyslexia instruction as outlined in the Texas Dyslexia Handbook, 2021 Update. Students with dyslexia who no longer receive direct services are monitored for success. If a need arises, appropriate intervention is provided.
Each campus has a Dyslexia Interventionist trained to deliver instruction to students with dyslexia. Instruction at the elementary level is done in a pullout program, while instruction at the secondary level is provided during a class period. The District provides professional development on the screening, identification, and instruction of students with dyslexia, as well as continuing education opportunities for educators who teach students with dyslexia that include training regarding new research and practices in educating students with dyslexia.
