News & Announcements

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

For the second year, the HBCSD Board Members passed a resolution to recognize Dyslexia Awareness Month in October. HBCSD is continuing to raise awareness through sharing information on the website, Constant Contact notifications at the school site, professional development for staff, and the West Orange County Consortium for Special Education Community Advisory Committee.

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) provides the following definition of dyslexia, which was adopted by the United States National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development:

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.

Below is a link to the new California Dyslexia Guidelines prepared by the California Department of Education in August 2017. This is a rich source of information including describing dyslexia, assessment, and best practices to support students that are struggling with dyslexia.

If you would like further information about dyslexia, please contact the Special Education Department at 714-378-2046.
