    Dyslexia Handbook

    On September 3rd, 2021, the State Board of Education (SBOE) gave final approval for updates to the Dyslexia Handbook. Some of the updates to the Dyslexia Handbook may require LEAs to make policy, procedure, and practice changes. The updated Dyslexia Handbook will go into effect on February 10th, 2022.  

    The handbook contains guidelines for school districts to follow as they identify and provide services for students with dyslexia. In addition, information regarding the state's dyslexia statutes and their relation to various federal laws is included. The changes to the handbook are summarized for parents in English and Spanish by TEA.

    Below is a link to a copy of the Dyslexia Handbook. A Spanish version of the handbook is currently unavailable.
