October is Dyslexia Awareness Month!

Good Afternoon Viking Families-

The HBCSD Board adopted a resolution to recognize October as Dyslexia Awareness Month.  The California Department of Education published the California Dyslexia Guidelines to assist educators with identifying and supporting students with 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 growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. (IDA 2002) 

If you have concerns for your child, please contact the school so that we can assist you with your concerns.
