The State Board of Education(SBOE) is beginning the process to update The Dyslexia Handbook – Revised 2014: Procedures Concerning Dyslexia and Related Disorders (Dyslexia Handbook) to address recent legislative changes and to clarify processes regarding identification and services for students.

Feedback will be provided to committees working on recommendations for updates to the handbook. The current handbook is available via the various links below under the Dyslexia Handbook section.

Please submit feedback and/or proposed recommendations to TEA at dyslexia@tea.texas.gov. We ask that you be as specific in your feedback as possible. The deadline for submitting initial feedback for the committee’s consideration is Monday, March 26, 2018. There will be additional opportunities for public input throughout the Dyslexia Handbook update process.
