Supporting and Empowering Students with Dyslexia: Tools for Reading Digital Text

Written by // Emily Fitch Thursday, 01 June 2023

Supporting and Empowering Students with Dyslexia: Supporting the Whole Child

Written by // Emily Fitch Tuesday, 02 May 2023

Ohio’s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement addresses the need to support educators to recognize and plan instruction for students with dyslexia. Because dyslexia affects between 11 and 17 percent of the population, all educators must have access to instructional approaches that are explicit, systematic, and structured (Wagner et al). This quality instruction will impact not only students with dyslexia but also their classmates who are not. Equipping educators with knowledge and skills from the Science of Reading is essential for reading proficiency for all students.
