CISD Dyslexia Services follow guidelines set by Texas Education Agency to identify and provide services for students with dyslexia. Qualified personnel follow procedures for dyslexia assessment and identification. Program monitoring and school support is available. Clifton ISD's Dyslexia staff participate in training and work with teachers to facilitate specialized programs designed to provide intensive instruction for students identified with dyslexia. The focus of instruction for dyslexia programs involves teaching procedures that students internalize and are able to retrieve when coping with tasks related to reading, spelling, and writing.


On September 3rd, 2021, the State Board of Education (SBOE) gave final approval for updates to the Dyslexia Handbook. Some of the updates to the Dyslexia Handbook may require LEAs to make policy, procedure, and practice changes. The updated Dyslexia Handbook will go into effect on February 10th, 2022.
