Thanks to a donation to PCEF from the Ty and Karen Hall Foundation, financial commitment from the School District, and advocacy from PC READS, an initiative to identify and support potentially dyslexic students was started this year.
There are 3 elements to the Dyslexia Initiative:
- Pilot Wilson Fundations, a multi-sensory, structured reading curriculum, at McPolin Elementary School, overseen by Instructional Coach Julie Hastings
- Provide 5 PCSD elementary educators comprehensive Orton-Gillingham training through the Institute for Multi-Sensory Education.
- Host dyslexia awareness presentations at all the elementary schools, given by PC READS.
The idea is these interventions will be helpful for ALL readers, and give teachers another tool in the tool belt to help struggling ones.
