According to the TEC Code 38.003:

(1) “Dyslexia” means a disorder of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spell, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and sociocultural opportunity.

(2) “Related disorders” includes disorders similar to or related to dyslexia, such as developmental auditory imperceptions, dysphasia, specific developmental dyslexia, developmental dysgraphia, and developmental spelling disability.

The primary signs of dyslexia include difficulty with phonemic awareness, manipulation of sounds in spoken language, single-word decoding, reading fluency, and spelling.  Secondary consequences of dyslexia may include problems with reading comprehension and/or written composition.  These difficulties are unexpected for the student’s age, education level, or cognitive abilities.  Additionally, there is often a family history of similar difficulties. 

Teachers, parents, or school administrators can request that students be assessed for dyslexia. Bullard ISD has moved to a single pathway for identification of dyslexia under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This change means that anytime it is suspected that the student has dyslexia or a related disorder and may need dyslexia intervention services, the LEA must seek parental consent for a Full Individual Initial Evaluation (FIIE) under the IDEA.
