An overview of the science of reading will be shared, outlining all component parts of reading. Current neurological data will be presented, and application in a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) model in addressing the needs of dyslexic populations.

The session will present a case study outlining how Fort SmithPublic Schools addressed Arkansas’ dyslexia legislation. The district designed their intervention based on current neurological research, a peer-reviewed independent impact evaluation study conducted by Texas A&M, and statewide comparison studies in Colorado as models for implementing a large-scale dyslexia initiative district-wide.

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 district addressed the systemic challenges by providing professional development in the five component parts of reading for all instructors to ensure student differentiation across all tiers of their MTSS structure.

The presentation will also outline their instructional leadership development plan implemented to address sustainability and long-term fidelity. The poster will include longitudinal student data for the student aggregate, including subgroups for students with dyslexia, Special Education students, and English Language learners.
