Texas Dyslexia Identification Academy
Module 3: Considerations for English Language Learners (ELLs)



Texas Dyslexia Identification Academy is an exciting new training initiative to help district and charter school teachers, administrators, dyslexia specialists, and assessment personnel with the challenges of identifying  students with dyslexia. This training offers five modules where participants can customize their professional development path by attending one or any combination of the five. TAC §232.11 requires educators who teach students with dyslexia to have CPE training in new research and practices in educating students with dyslexia.*

*Successful completion of Module 1 may satisfy this requirement, per local district policy.


Important Session Information:


Module 3 is the third of 5 modules developed to assist school districts and charter schools in the identification of students with dyslexia in the ELL student population.  The objective of Module 3 is to review the process of second language acquisition, research on the relative effectiveness of different language programs, the various types of orthography that exist around the world, and the benefits of bilingualism.  Data gathering and formal evaluation, as well as, instructional programming for ELLs will also be reviewed.
