Dyslexia in the Classroom: What Every Teacher Needs to Know

Many elementary school teachers have limited resources related to dyslexia and other learning differences. Dyslexia in the Classroom: What Every Teacher Needs to Know was developed to open the door for these educators to a better understanding of dyslexia. 

This handbook is intended to support all teachers in their passion to help every child reach his or her fullest potential. Use it to raise awareness, share best practices, and be a resource to your school’s administration and staff.

Inside you’ll learn more about find topics such as:

  • Signs and symptoms of dyslexia
  • Classroom strategies, tips, and tools
  • Components of effective reading instruction
  • Screening, evaluation, and diagnosis

We encourage you to share this handbook with as many people as possible. The more educators we can inform, the more children we can help!
