When is RTI Too Much?

As a parent, if you suspect dyslexia, know that you are not at the mercy of the school system to dictate when testing occurs in the Special Education system. It is YOUR RIGHT as a parent to be granted a Full Individual Evaluation and bypass the school’s RTI policy if you have concerns. Instead of allowing your child to “fail further,” we can consider avoiding the RTI steps and move directly into the IQ and specialized reading tests needed for identification. The ability to do so is part of your afforded rights through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The faster we have a dyslexia diagnosis, the faster we can get the needed accommodations in place for success. Of course, if your school does offer appropriate Orton Gillingham, evidence-based instruction, these interventions can also take effect. If not, parents can be ready to locate quality dyslexia therapy such as what is found at Dyslexia On Demand to turn the ship around for their children, both academically and emotionally.
