    Each campus within the Lewisville ISD provides services to students who have been identified as having dyslexia or related disorders.  LISD will provide instructional strategies and assessments in Spanish and English as appropriate to students identified as having dyslexia or related disorders in a special program to remediate their learning differences and provide them with opportunities to develop skills necessary to succeed on grade level.  Staff will also provide instructional and compliance support for campus personnel working with students with dyslexia or related disorders, as well as,  provide expertise on literacy interventions in addition to dyslexia. Knowledgeable staff will serve on the RTI/504 committee to follow student progress and make recommendations for student interventions and remediation. Staff will provide literacy interventions to students that are in Tier III, Tier II, and Tier I as appropriate. Assessments will be administered to track student progress and review assessment data with all stakeholders.
