Dyslexia Monitoring

On June 4, 2019, the 86th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill (SB) 2075, requiring local education agencies (LEAs) to notify the parents or guardians of students determined, on the basis of dyslexia screening or reading instrument results to have dyslexia or a related disorder, or to be at risk for dyslexia or other reading difficulties, to have access to the Talking Book Program (TBP) maintained by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.

Additionally, SB 2075 requires the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to effectively monitor all LEAs to ensure that districts are complying with this requirement, including the program approved by the State Board of Education (SBOE), identify any problems LEAs experience in complying with the requirements, including the program approved by the SBOE under this section, and develop reasonable and appropriate remedial strategies to address LEA noncompliance.

The Department of Review and Support Dyslexia Monitoring goal is to support LEAs to increase outcomes for students with dyslexia and related disorders and ensure they receive appropriate services and supports.
