My passion is working with struggling readers and students with Dyslexia. This will be my 22nd year in FBISD.
Did you know that 1 in 5 students are Dyslexic? Dyslexia is a language based learning disability that is neurological in origin. Nearly the same percentage of males and females have dyslexia. One of the biggest misconception about dyslexia is that children with dyslexia "see" letters and words backwards. Dyslexia is not due to either the lack of intelligence or a desire to learn. The Reading Specialists in FBISD are trained in the Basic Language Dyslexia Intervention program developed by the Neuhaus Reading Center in Houston, Texas. This intervention program is a researched based program that is direct, explicit, and systematic. Participation in this dyslexia intervention program is just what a student who has been identified with dyslexia needs in order to learn to overcome dyslexia. I lam looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year!
