What is dyslexia? - Kelli Sandman-Hurley

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that affects the reading of individuals. Students with dyslexia are very bright and do well in other subjects that do not require a lot of reading.

How do we assist students with dyslexia?

The referral process starts at the campus with the student's counselor or diagnostician.  Once students complete the referral and evaluation process they may be placed in an intervention program. We have certified academic language therapists and dyslexia para educators who work with the students 50-60 minutes four or five days a week using one of these two-year programs:

  • Take Flight
  • Dyslexia Training Program
  • Literacy Program
  • Esperanza
