Spoken language, reading, spelling, and writing can be challenging for students with dyslexia. These difficulties, however, can be overcome with language-based, systematic instruction and consistent support. Our literacy products are aligned to research-
and evidence-based practices for teaching reading.
According to the International Dyslexia Association®, “Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding
abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.”
For a more detailed description, see the IDA Dyslexia Handbook: What Every Family Should Know.
Effective reading instruction for students who struggle requires research-based solutions that keep them motivated and excited to learn. The most effective solutions are those that follow the Structured Literacy approach, which is distinctive in guiding
how critical elements are taught.
Structured Literacy is the approach endorsed by the International Dyslexia Association’s Board of Directors. It encompasses instruction that conforms to IDA’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.
Structured Literacy is defined by several elements and principles outlined in the Effective Reading Fact Sheet. Explicit, systematic, and cumulative instruction in the
essential elements listed below is critical to ensuring student success in learning to read. This approach is not only vital for students with dyslexia, but research has found it is effective for all students.
The following programs align with the principles of Structured Literacy. View the PDF below for more information specific to dyslexia, or use the links below to learn more about each solution.

As a consequence of advocacy, many states have now adopted laws pertaining the identification and treatment of dyslexia. While recognition of dyslexia is long overdue, conflicts between scientific evidence and popular beliefs continue to complicate implementation
of these well-intentioned laws. Dr. Louisa Moats, author and nationally recognized literacy expert, will address quandaries such as the definition of dyslexia, appropriate criteria for identification, teacher preparation, and selection and use of
Acadience Reading provides one of the best methods of identifying students who are at risk for early reading difficulties, including dyslexia, monitoring those students to determine whether they remain at risk, and identifying students who are
not making adequate progress and should be referred for further assessment.
