Dyslexia

Overview

                                            JISD Dyslexia Services

In striving to meet the needs of all students, JISD offers a special dyslexia program. This program is for students who qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 rather than under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Students must meet a specific criteria to be accepted into the dyslexia program because it is so specialized. Students with reading difficulties receive extra assistance through our reading specialist in the Reading Lab and extra classroom support from teachers.
