Conversation Starter for Using the “D” Words

PEATC is proud to be one of the twelve partners to participate with the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) in the development of a new parent and educator tool.  This conversation guide for parents and educators is designed to help understand specific learning disorders and the role of the terms dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, particularly as part of the IEP process.

This opportunity came as a direct result of the October 2015 guidance letter issued by the USED, US Department of Education which “reminded schools that they can use terms like dyslexia, dyscalculia, or dysgraphia to describe the particular issues facing students who have SLD. The terms can be used in the evaluation process, in an IEP, and can help schools better understand the needs of each student.” (NCLD, Article June, 2017)
