The EDUFAX Educational FAQ


Question #22:
  • Are public schools required to have a special program for dyslexia? And are there any guidelines that are mandated?
Answer #22:
  • Public schools are required to provide accommodation for all mandated learning disabilities. If the proper testing and diagnostic reports are presented, the schools have an obligation to provide an appropriate education in the least restrictive setting. In some districts, however, it is impossible to have specialized professionals in every school, so some children with special needs are sent to different schools in the district. Write to the Department of Education in your state for specific guidelines regarding specific regulations. If a student with dyslexia cannot be served in the public system, the district will have to consider external placement.
    If this process sounds too daunting for you, find an educational consultant with experience in services for LD students. You could also use the EDUFAX services for the LD Student.
