Dyslexia in Bluff Dale ISD
As per new state laws, ALL kindergaten and first grade students will be screened for dyslexia. Students whose results show dyslexic traits will be tested, pending parent approval, for dyslexia. A student does not have to go through the RtI process before they can be tested for dyslexia. Anytime a need is shown, testing can be considered, and if appropraite, completed.
