SB398 Dyslexic Student Early Interventions
SB398 is intended to ensure that students most at risk for reading failure receive evidenced-based instruction at an early age. IDA recommends that any student with characteristics of dyslexia (weak decoding and encoding) receive classroom instruction that covers the components and principles of “Structured Literacy.” (These are the same components that the National Reading Panel found to be most effective twenty years ago.)
