The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia
Remember, if your child has dyslexia, he or she may be entitled to accommodations under a "504 Plan," or an IEP for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ("IDEA"). If you don't know if your child has dyslexia, but he or she struggles in school with reading or even math, then ask the school to evaluate your child. Schools are obligated to evaluate students that the school's teachers or other school/education professionals (school principal, school nurse, etc.) "suspect" that your child may has a disability that might require special education. The school's requirement is its Child Find obligation.
