Educators, parents, and community members are invited to review draft updates to The Dyslexia Handbook: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders (Dyslexia Handbook) and to provide specific feedback or recommendations to the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
The draft updated handbook is available on the Dyslexia page of the TEA website, https://tea.texas.gov/academics/dyslexia/.
Earlier this year, the State Board of Education (SBOE) tasked a committee with making recommendations for updates to The Dyslexia Handbook – Revised 2014: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders (Dyslexia Handbook) to address recent legislative changes and to clarify processes regarding identification and services for students.
The SBOE is scheduled to approve updates to the handbook at its meeting on November 16, 2018. Please submit feedback and/or proposed recommendations to TEA at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you be as specific in your feedback as possible.
The deadline for submitting feedback for consideration is Monday, October 29, 2018, at 5:00 p.m.
