Dyslexia Screening, Intervention, and Teacher Training Roadmap 1.0   

We are pleased to present the Dyslexia Screening, Intervention, and Teacher Training Roadmap.
The Dyslexia Screening, Intervention, and Teacher Training Roadmap is complete. The Roadmap was created by 5 public school districts in conjunction with IDA Central Ohio. It was presented and discussed by a panel of representatives from 6 public school districts at the Ohio Summit on Dyslexia on February 3, 2020.
The Roadmap is certainly not inclusive of everything you need to know about literacy and dyslexia, but it will be a useful tool to assist your local school district in supporting striving readers. This is our initial version of the document so there are areas that may require more explanation. If you have feedback or ideas for future content, please email us or comment on our social media. Please share the Roadmap with your local school districts and other advocates for literacy.
