Equity Issues Related to Serving Students with Dyslexia

A Conversation with Dr. Sherril English

Watch this hour-long conversation that Pivot Learning’s Vice President of Education Programs, Dr. Monica Ng, and CORE’s Director of Literacy, Dr. Carrie Thomas Beck, had with Dr. Sherril English, Clinical Associate Professor at Southern Methodist University, about current inequities in the way schools identify students with reading disabilities and provide reading instruction.

We’re Here to Help You Provide Exceptional Instruction and Support for Students with Word Reading Difficulties

Dyslexia is top-of-mind in many districts as more states pass legislation to improve supports for students with dyslexia and other word reading difficulties. We work at both the district and school levels to provide insight and guidance to help ensure all students become strong readers. Specifically, Pivot Learning can work with schools and districts to:

  • Develop policies and practices for screening for risk factors and the identification of dyslexia.
  • Provide professional learning and coaching to help teachers understand the key characteristics of dyslexia and learn evidenced-based instructional practices that prevent reading difficulties from becoming lifelong achievement gaps.
  • Implement processes to determine whether English learners are experiencing academic difficulty due to language or a learning disability, such as dyslexia.

If you’d like to speak to someone about how Pivot Learning can support your district to improve outcomes for students with word reading difficulties like dyslexia, please email Dr. Carrie Thomas Beck at CORE.
