Sometimes students receive a diagnosis of Dyslexia from a doctor or specialist in the community. While schools in South Dakota don't formally diagnose Dyslexia, they still provide services and supports for students who struggle to read because of it. In this session participants will learn about the difference between a diagnosis of Dyslexia and a determination of a Reading Disability by their local school district. Participants will also learn how to address concerns by asking key questions when meeting with their school team.
