Albany ISD Dyslexia
Albany I.S.D. dyslexia services are based on Take Flight: A Comprehensive Program for Children with Dyslexia by the Texas Schottish Rite Hospital for Children. Take Flight addresses the five essential components of reading with direct, intensive and explicit instruction using multi-sensory techniques in learning the code of sounds and letters. Multi-sensory learning offers children opportunities to learn through seeing, hearing, and touching. In addition, these programs utilize repetition to secure concepts of reading, spelling and writing. Take Flight is a scientifically research based program.
Albany I.S.D. students receive protection under Section 504* with an Accommodation Plan or IDEA** with an Individualized Educational Plan (IEP).
Decisions regarding these students will be made by either a Section 504 Committee or an ARD Committee, which include parents and knowledgeable school personnel.
