Academic Interventions and Dyslexia Program
Research-Based Academic Intervention
With the goal of helping every student to succeed, HISD’s Research-Based Academic Intervention Program identifies students of all ages who are facing academic challenges and introduces educational strategies that improve student learning.
HISD focuses on providing students with a safe and nurturing environment that meets them right where they are. Children are praised for not only accomplishment, but for effort as well.
HISD provides classroom teachers with screening tools to identify children who need assistance. Information is gathered through observation, interview, review of school records, and informal assessment. HISD also works alongside teachers to develop effective interventions and provides tools to monitor progress.
Parents with concerns about their child’s academic achievement are invited to talk with classroom teachers. Teachers and parents working together often can establish informal strategies that address issues.
When students are facing challenges with reading, it is important to correctly determine the cause so that the most effective assistance can be provided. The goal of HISD’s Dyslexia Program is to identify students who are experiencing dyslexia or other learning disabilities and provide support so they are able to master reading skills and achieve academic success.
HISD is devoted to helping students overcome these challenges and become successful readers by providing special curriculum resources and training for classroom teachers.
