• 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, 2018 Update. Students with dyslexia who no longer receive direct services are monitored for success.  If a need arises, appropriate intervention is provided.

    The Birdville ISD dyslexia program is offered to students with dyslexia, either through special education or through Section 504. Instruction at the elementary level is done in a pullout program.  Instruction at the secondary level is provided during an intervention time or a class period.

    Each campus has a Reading Interventionist trained to deliver standard protocol dyslexia instruction and Special Education teachers trained to deliver specially designed dyslexia instruction. 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.
