What is Dyslexia?

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”

Goals of CTS Dyslexia Program

The Choctaw Tribal Schools Exceptional Education Department does not claim that the student will be "cured" during the therapy period because dyslexia is a life-long condition. Our goals are that students from the Choctaw Tribal Schools with dyslexia will become functional readers, gain valuable tools to aid in coping with their disability and achieve academic success.
