Dyslexia Guidance Documents


Definition of Dyslexia

“Dyslexia” means a neurological learning disability characterized by difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition and poor spelling and decoding abilities that typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language (NRS 388.429).

The Nevada Department of Education has prepared the following documents as a resource guide for each school district, public school, and charter school to use to identify and provide instructional supports for students with or at-risk for dyslexia in accordance with Nevada laws (NRS 388.429 and NRS 388.443).
