In mid-August, the California Department of Education published long-awaited dyslexia guidelines designed to assist regular and special education teachers and parents in identifying, assessing, and supporting students with dyslexia. This achievement resulted from the 2015 passage of AB 1369, which created a Work Group to help develop guidelines for students with dyslexia in California’s public schools. The complete guidelines are available on the California Department of Education website. IDA Northern California has culled 10 important-to-know highlights from these guidelines that summarize important points.
For additional background on dyslexia, teachers, administrators and parents can download these IDA online references:
IDA also publishes 19 different fact sheets on various aspects of dyslexia, many of which are available in Spanish.
