Students suspected of having dyslexia are identified through a formal evaluation process in College Station ISD. This evaluation may be conducted specifically to determine if a student has dyslexia through a Section 504 evaluation or as part of an evaluation for special education services. Evaluators are either Educational Diagnosticians or Licensed Specialists in School Psychology. Following the completion of the evaluation, a written report is generated and reviewed by either the 504 or ARD committee, depending on the nature of the referral. Independent educational evaluations for dyslexia will be considered.
All CSISD campuses offer a continuum of services for students with dyslexia. Some students may only require instructional accommodation through Section 504, others may need direct, intensive instruction in reading, and others may require the much more intensive support and services of special education. Because dyslexia ranges from very mild to very severe, it is crucial that individual needs are considered when planning for student success. Many students with dyslexia
are served through general education with or without a 504 plan.
If you have concerns that your child may have dyslexia, please contact your child's teacher, counselor, or principal to find out more about the Student Intervention Team (SIT) process.
