  • 130 - students were administered the universal screener
  • 14 - students were determined to be "at-risk" or "at some risk" to have characteristics of dyslexia

    • Dyslexia Intervention programs used in the previous school year: Roxie Reading, Orton-Gillingham, HELPS Reading Program, Heggerty Phonological & Phonemic Awareness, and Activities from the Florida Center for Reading Research
According to Senate Enrolled Act 217: Beginning the 2019-2020 school year ALL kindergarten through second-grade students will be given an Indiana Department of Education approved Universal Screener to assess for characteristics of dyslexia. The universal screener does not identify dyslexia, only the areas of weakness in phonological and phonemic awareness, sound-symbol recognition, alphabet knowledge, decoding skills, rapid naming skills, and encoding skills.
