     Philosophy

    Children learn to read, write and spell in different ways. A balanced reading program should meet the needs of most students. Students who do not learn to read, write, and spell when presented with a broad, balanced reading program should be offered a variety of alternative strategies to meet this goal. If these alternative strategies are not successful, students who exhibit signs of dyslexia may need more specific intervention strategies. Prosper Independent School District offers a Dyslexia Program to students at each campus who meet the eligibility criteria. Students will be served by a trained teacher with a program which includes the critical, evidence-based components of phonological awareness, sound-symbol association, syllabication, orthography, morphology, syntax, reading comprehension and fluency. Students identified as showing signs of dyslexia will be given support and appropriate instructional interventions in order to be successful in their academic career.
