CISD Dyslexia Services

  • The most common CISD services offered are:

    • Language Science Dyslexia Therapy Program
    • Regular classroom with 504 accommodations
    • Special Education Services for Eligible Students

    Within Carroll ISD, the definitive decision in determining whether or not a student meets the district’s dyslexia/related eligibility criteria is made by the 504 or ARD/IEP Committee. Each student will receive all programs/services and/or accommodations/modifications as delineated in his or her 504 Plan (IAP) or Individual Education Plan (IEP).

    Dyslexia Therapy
    The Carroll ISD Language Science Dyslexia Program is an Orton-Gillingham based explicit, intensive, multi-sensory program available at all campuses, beginning with phonemic/phonological skills in kindergarten and first grade. 

    Language Science Class Components

    • Provide students with a better understanding of the language structure by breaking words into parts according to their letter clusters (graphemes), speech sounds (phonemes), meaningful units (morphemes), and syllable types or patterns.
    • Teach probable pronunciations and predictable patterns for words.
    • Build fluent readers who have the ability to read accurately, at an appropriate rate, with expression with good phrasing to support comprehension.
    • Improve spelling by teaching the rules that most often apply to words according to the situation.
    • Build student confidence as a reader.
