Serving the Student with Dyslexia
Mansfield ISD provides a program for all students with dyslexia. Each student is served by a trained reading specialist on the home campus. The MISD Dyslexia Program includes the components of phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, reading fluency and reading comprehension strategies.

The instructional strategies utilize research-based, explicit, multisensory phonetic methods and a variety of writing and spelling components to meet the specific learning needs of each individual student.

Instruction is organized and presented in a way that follows a logical, sequential plan and proceeds at a rate commensurate with each student’s needs, ability level, and demonstration of progress.

Early intervention is critical. With the right supports, dyslexic individuals can become highly successful students.

A request for a dyslexia evaluation may be made at any time during or after receiving intervention if the student is not responding to the intervention and demonstrates characteristics of dyslexia.

No two students are alike. Some students, in fact, face unique challenges every day as they attempt to succeed in the classroom. Dyslexia is one of several distinct learning differences that Mansfield ISD constructs a comprehensive plan to combat.
