ESE’s Office of Special Education Planning and Policy has launched a new webpage entitled Specific Learning Disability: Dyslexia.

The webpage includes definitions of dyslexia as a specific learning disability as found in federal and state law, information on recent dyslexia legislation, states’ guidelines on dyslexia, and upcoming ESE professional development on dyslexia. The page also includes resources for professionals working with students who have dyslexia or another learning disability or have demonstrated potential indicators of dyslexia.

The resources cover topics such as screening, intervention, accommodations, assistive technology, specially designed instruction, and social and emotional needs.
