Is there any specific information regarding how a student should be trained if diagnosed with dyslexia? Research indicates multi sensory eg OG reading approach. Thank you.
Mary, if you are asking what the New Mexico law would require, you can read the law here: https://www.nmlegis.gov/Sessions/19%20Regular/final/SB0398.pdf
The law requires that “each school district or charter school shall provide timely, appropriate, systematic, scientific, evidence-based interventions prescribed by the student assistance team, with progress monitoring to determine the student’s response or lack of response.” but does not specify what that intervention would be.
This page on our site has links to information from the US Department of Education What Works Clearinghouse that links to their findings concerning research into school-based programs for children with learning differences: https://www.dyslegia.com/resource-links/research-status-what-works-clearinghouse/
