Dyslexia Services in Round Rock ISD
The Round Rock ISD dyslexia program is designed to provide high quality reading support for children who meed Round Rock’s criteria. Services are offered to qualifying students in kindergarten through grade 12. When a Student Support Team meets and suspects that a particular child is displaying characteristics of dyslexia, a 504 referral process is started. Parents may also refer a student for evaluation at any time. One of the district’s dyslexia evaluators will then assess the student using a battery of tests. Such services provide the students with the skills and strategies to “unlock” the code of reading and to improve reading fluency. Students are instructed using Orton-Gillingham based reading programs and/or multi-sensory structured language approaches.
Katie Bryan, left, district dyslexia specialist and in-district teacher trainer for Round Rock Independent School District, recently completed a one-year internship to become the district’s new Wilson® Credentialed Trainer. During the past school year, Bryan and Wilson Literacy Specialist Sally Scott, right, trained and certified a new cohort of 13 teachers in the Wilson Reading System®, an intensive reading intervention program.
