DYSLEXIA RESOURCE GUIDE
The Arkansas Department of Education has created a Dyslexia Resource Guide to provide guidance for districts, schools, and teachers as they seek to effectively meet Arkansas code provisions regarding Dyslexia screening and intervention. In addition to Dyslexia specifics, it also outlines the relationship of Dyslexia Intervention to RTI, and how this combination meets IDEA (the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).
