Resources to Support the Georgia Dyslexia Pilot Districts
In 2020 SREB began working with the Region 6 Comprehensive Center at SERVE to support the Georgia Department of Education and Georgia’s dyslexia pilot program. Part of this support includes producing resources for the pilot districts, which can be downloaded below.
Georgia Dyslexia Pilot Program Implementation Analysis 2019-2020
The purpose of this brief is to provide information about the initial planning for the three-year Georgia Dyslexia Pilot Program leading up to the 2020-21 school year. The Region 6 Comprehensive Center (RC6) at SERVE Center at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and the RC6 partner, Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), developed this brief at the request of, and in collaboration with, the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE).
Key GaDOE Resources for Multi-Tiered Systems of Support and Dyslexia
In 2020-21 SREB and RC6 created a catalog of all multi-tiered systems of support- and dyslexia-related resources on certain GaDOE webpages. A collaborative effort with GaDOE narrowed down the resources in the catalog to a small number of key resources that can help address districts’ needs for information about various aspects of multi-tiered systems of support and dyslexia. Links to these resources are included in this document.
Evidence-Based Literacy Instruction and Dyslexia
Districts in the dyslexia pilot program requested information on training opportunities for teachers. This document contains a list of information sources and training opportunities for teachers to learn about dyslexia and evidence-based literacy instruction.
Structured Literacy Training
Districts in the dyslexia pilot program requested information on structured literacy training opportunities for teachers. Structured literacy is an umbrella term to describe a number of different instructional approaches that adhere to the same principles.
Districts in Georgia’s dyslexia pilot program requested information on how they can fund dyslexia intervention for students and training for teachers to meet the requirements of Georgia Senate Bill 48. This document covers federal, state, and private funding sources that may be used to cover the cost of dyslexia training and/or intervention.
