Summer has ended and a new school year is beginning for children and parents across the country. For some, this evokes excitement and for others nervous anticipation. For a child with dyslexia and her parents, the new school year can even bring up feelings of fear.

IDA has published several articles that may help you start the school year with solid information and greater confidence. I’ve selected a few that you may find useful:

What is an important sign that your child is in the right school?

If you are concerned that your child may have dyslexia, which assessments are needed?

How is assistive technology (AT) helpful for students with dyslexia and how can I make sure my child gets what he needs?

We hope your child has a confident start to the new school year and that the resources at NCBIDA are helpful for your family.
