Definitions and Characteristics of Dyslexia
The student who struggles with reading and spelling often puzzles teachers and parents. The student displays ability to learn in the absence of print and receives the same classroom instruction that benefits most children; however, the student continues to struggle with some of all of the many facets of reading and spelling. This student may be a student with dyslexia.
Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.003 defines dyslexia in the following way:
“Dyslexia “ means a disorder of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spell, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and socio-cultural opportunity.
“Related disorders” include disorders similar to or related to dyslexia such as developmental auditory imperceptions, dysphasia, specific developmental dyslexia, developmental dysgraphia, and developmental spelling disability.
“Although dyslexia affects individuals over the life span…reading skills can be increased with the right early intervention and prevention programs.”
An awareness of the sounds of the language, letter/sound associations, vocabulary, and strategies for understanding the written language through direct, explicit, and systematic instruction are the foundational building blocks needed in a curriculum used for dyslexia intervention. Take Flight is a curriculum developed by Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for use in dyslexia therapy situations. It includes guided, repeated practice which enables the child to apply what has been learned efficiently. This intensity is what distinguishes a dyslexia intervention from regular reading instruction.
