What is Dyslexia?
Dyslexia causes difficulty in the skills needed for learning to read, spell and write, but it is much more than that. Studies have found that as many as one in five children in the United States demonstrate symptoms of dyslexia. While dyslexia may make reading more difficult, Concord Community Schools staff are equipped with the knowledge and resources to help all students succeed.
During the 2018-2019 school year Concord Community Schools adopted Wilson Fundations, a research-based program that we use for all students in grades kindergarten through second for early literacy instruction. This, coupled with strong assessment tools for identifying struggling readers and evidence-based intervention approaches have contributed to our steady student achievement growth over the past several years as we have improved 33 percentile points when compared to other districts across the state.
