The Spring Branch ISD Dyslexia Program is based on the concepts and instructional approaches of Orton-Gillingham. Spring Branch strives to ensure that identified dyslexic students receive an intensive, structured, cumulative, yet individualized dyslexia program that meets the specific strengths and needs of each student.
Our instructional program includes the components of phonemic awareness, graphophonemic knowledge, language structure, linguistic patterns, and strategic-oriented instruction in decoding, encoding, word recognition, fluency and comprehension.
A dyslexia support teacher knowledgeable in the assessment, identification, and research-based instruction of dyslexic students is assigned to every campus in the district.
