Dyslexia Access, Equity, and Inclusion

If a student is struggling to read even after access and instruction are provided, then it is up to the collective group of school administrators, teachers, and parents to examine that struggle closer. But what determines that access? What barriers exist? Diversity awareness can be a guide to the answer. If not, we miss key opportunities for creating a collective understanding. It is critical that all stakeholders in the process of educating kids are knowledgeable, capable, and eligible to make decisions surrounding student success. There is a roadmap that one can take to help cultivate relationships and navigate the school setting when seeking assistance for struggling students. If we are going to create systems of support for students, there must be an examination of current practices and student outcomes. We will analyze reading instruction through the lens of equality and equitable access to education for dyslexic students, engage in group collaboration on the topic of dyslexia, and interact with a simulation activity.
