The purpose of this session is to provide an overview of the science of reading, including all component parts of reading. Current neurological data will be presented, and application in a Multitiered System of Support (MTSS) model in addressing the needs of dyslexic populations. The session will present a case study outlining how Fort Smith Public Schools addressed Arkansas’ dyslexia legislation. The session will provide highlights of Fort Smith Public School’s implementation for Universal Screening for all K-2 students, features of their initial 10-Day intervention cycle, Level Two screening, intervention groups for students with characteristics of Dyslexia, Dyslexia Awareness Training for All Teachers, and integration with their state-mandated Reading Initiative for Student Excellence (RISE) Training. The presentation will also outline their instructional leadership development plan implemented to address sustainability and long-term fidelity. Participants will be provided opportunities throughout the session for share-outs in small groups as well as with the collective group to encourage dialogue and collaborative solutions. The presentation will include longitudinal student data for the student aggregate as well as for the subgroups for students with dyslexia, Special Education students, and English Language learners.
