New Site Devoted to Dyslexia Resources Goes Live

A statewide AEA team has developed a new site with resources to support educators who serve students identified with dyslexia and families to provide support to their children.

Resources on the site include:

  • Definition of dyslexia in the State of Iowa and possible indicators

  • Presentation for educators on dyslexia

  • Letter for parents about the services that LEAs and AEAs can provide for a student with reading concerns

  • Information about seeking a diagnosis

  • Web, books and DVD tools

An expert group that included Wendy Robinson, Heartland AEA, Director of Instructional Services; Jen Sigrist, Van Meter CSD, Director of Learning and Innovation; and Deb Vail, Heartland AEA, Media/Instructional Technology Consultant, identified and developed the resources on behalf of Collaborating for Iowa’s Kids (C4K) to address a need in the system. Content was vetted by C4K Work Team Co-Chairs, AEA Educational Services Directors, AEA Special Education Directors and AEA Media Directors.
