What is dyslexia? Here are some ideas that might help you.Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability related to learning to read.  It is typically characterized by difficulties with word fluency, spelling, and decoding.  Common signs of dyslexia include:
*failure to understand that words are made up of parts or sounds
*difficulty learning the letter names of the alphabet and the sounds that those letters make
*difficulty reading single words in isolation
*difficulty with spelling words
*choppy reading, but very good listening comprehension
*avoids reading aloud or reading for pleasure
Students in KISD's dyslexia program have undergone extensive interventions in the general education classroom and Academic Support classroom without success and entered the program following specific dyslexia testing.  Teachers meet with administrators to discuss students who may be showing dyslexic tendancies and whose names may be submitted for assessment by a KISD dyslexia assessor.  If you have questions, please first contact your child's reading teacher to discuss your concerns.  You may also contact Barbara Landis, our school's dyslexia teacher.  She is on our campus each afternoon.

What is 'academic support'? We are here to help struggling readers.Use SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).
This program provides intensive reading intervention to students in elementary grades who are identified as most at-risk of failing to achieve grade-level expectations in reading.  Our goal is to accelerate the learning of reading students while supplementing the instruction of the classroom teacher.  Students in first through fifth grades attend reading group for 30 minutes daily.
We are here to assist students, teachers, and parents with the art of reading.
The MPE Academic Support teachers for reading are Mrs. McClellan and Mrs. Reeves. Mrs. Garza is our bilingual Academic Support teacher.
