 Dyslexia


The definition of dyslexia adopted by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) states: “Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”

The Division for Special Education Services has provided the following ElluminateLive! sessions on dyslexia. This series serves to provide the viewer with an understanding of the term, dyslexia, the core deficits involved in dyslexia and SLD eligibility in the area of reading, and how to select available resources. Please go to http://elluminate.gavirtualschool.org/doe/index.html and click on the Recordings tab at the top left. Go to the date listed below to access the desired session.
