The Keller ISD dyslexia program is based on the Orton-Gillingham
approach to reading which consists of a multisensory, structured
language curriculum. This curriculum breaks down the structure of
the English language and utilizes auditory, kinesthetic and visual
pathways. Students in the Keller ISD dyslexia program receive
intensive multisensory instruction delivered by a qualified dyslexia
specialist. Instruction for students is systematic, sequential, and
maximizes student engagement at all levels. Each campus in KISD
has a minimum of one dyslexia specialist who has been specifically
trained to work with dyslexic students through an accredited
academic language therapy program.
