Hi! I’m looking into programs for supporting dyslexia students. Any ideas? Something within a smaller budget and is user friendly. Thanks!

Years ago I used a program called Lexia. It was developed by a father of a dyslexic child. It worked well for me. It was big on the East coast for a while. If it is out there, you should try it.

Talk to your speech and language pathologist or school psychologist! It's a newer thing but they're supposed to be on the lookout for it and may have guidance for where to look and *potentially* help with funding for materials.

I use a supplement scripted program called Barton. It’s Orton Gillingham based. The students loveeee it. They think it’s fun and it’s easy to implement!

I have been using Wilson intensive this year and I’ve really seen a lot of progress with my students! I’m not Wilson trained but I have access to some old resources and I’ve made a lot of other things on my own this year - it’s been a lot of work but I see it working!

I am curious. When you evaluate a student, do you always feel the student truly met criteria or do you feel like you are sometimes grasping at straws to qualify a student to make a teacher or principal happy? I evaluated a student who we qualified under Autism Spectrum Disorder because he talked a lot, but not during instruction. He didn’t have many friends either. But could that have been a friendship group with the social worker.

I am looking to find out what your school does with this type of situation.

This student has been an EBD student since 1st grade, has an IQ of 96 and has diagnoses of ADHD and Mood Disorder. This post continues on the first comment due to a character limit in this section.
