Dyslexia

Prairie Lakes Area Education Dyslexia Team

 

One of the new laws created during the 2014 legislative session focused on dyslexia. The legislation defined this as an educational diagnosis and so was added to Iowa Education Code. Dyslexia is defined as ‘a specific and significant impairment in the development of reading, including but not limited to phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension that is not solely accounted for by intellectual disability, sensory disability or impairment or lack of appropriate instruction.'
