Special Education Teacher
Our team of professionals support the special education department with managing a caseload of students. These services include preparation for ARD meetings, facilitation of meetings, compliance of documents, direct services to students, provide general education training and support. . . The services could be provided in a part time or full time capacity to meet the needs of the school district.
Our paraprofessional team supports the teacher by assisting in the classroom, supervising students outside of the classroom, or provide administrative support for teaching.
Identifying dyslexia varies greatly from state to state. Some states don’t recognize dyslexia at all, some include dyslexia in their special education services, and some consider it to be a 504 disability. In Texas, dyslexia is considered a 504 disability and possibly a special education disability.
While Texas sorts out the confusion over the state of dyslexia, AIM is continuing to provide high quality evaluations that meet the state and federal guidelines, no matter where your child attends school. We have a team of experts at AIM with extensive experience in evaluating, treating, and providing consultation services for dyslexia. We include a comprehensive review of a student’s history, risk factors, and needs, in addition to an evaluation for characteristics of dyslexia and related disorders, such as dysgraphia.
In a school setting, we work with the guidelines determined by each district to evaluate students for dyslexia, to make recommendations for programming based on the options available in your district, and to explain the results of the testing to parents. We also provide comprehensive training to school staff who are struggling with their changing role in working with students with dyslexia. We understand the struggle, the frustration, and the ambiguity and we are here to help.
