In an attempt to meet the needs of all of our parents, two meetings are scheduled at the Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD Education Center (at the Special Programs building on the corner of MLK and FM 1130) on Thursday, September 13, 2012 to provide parent training on the characteristics of dyslexia.

The morning meeting will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The afternoon meeting will be held from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Information provided will include: awareness of characteristics of dyslexia and related disorders; information on testing and diagnosis of dyslexia; information on effective strategies for teaching dyslexic students; and awareness of information on modification, especially modifications allowed on standardized testing.
