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. Grandview ISD typically serves students in a small group setting with 2-4 students. Lessons are typically 30 minutes four-five days per week. The program emphasis is on reading and spelling. The program uses a diagnostic, cumulative, direct, sequential, systematic, and multi-sensory teaching approach.
