    D. Read, write, and spell.
    Explanation
    Dyslexia is a learning disorder that primarily affects reading, writing, and spelling abilities. Individuals with dyslexia may struggle with recognizing and decoding words, spelling accurately, and expressing themselves in written form. This difficulty in language-related skills can also impact their ability to speak fluently. However, dyslexia does not typically affect physical abilities such as walking, running, or talking. Therefore, the correct answer is "read, write, and spell."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A student that is not fluent in English, has numerous absences, and has passed TAKS every year, but is failing every class, might qualify to be evaluated for dyslexia.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that a student who is not fluent in English, has numerous absences, and has passed TAKS every year, but is failing every class, might qualify to be evaluated for dyslexia. However, this statement is false. Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that primarily affects reading and spelling skills. While the student's difficulties in English fluency and academic performance may be indicative of other learning challenges, it does not necessarily imply dyslexia. Dyslexia evaluations require a comprehensive assessment by a qualified professional.

    • A.

      Oral reading.

    • B.

      Decoding nonsense words.

    • C.

      Spelling.

    • D.

      All of the above.

    • E.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    Students with dyslexia have unexplained difficulty with oral reading, decoding nonsense words, and spelling. Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects a person's ability to read, write, and spell. Individuals with dyslexia may struggle with reading fluently, accurately decoding words, and spelling words correctly. This difficulty is not related to intelligence or vision problems but is due to differences in the way the brain processes language. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above" as students with dyslexia experience challenges in all these areas.

    What must be received before assessment can begin?

    • A.

      Permission from the DI.

      A big hug and kiss to the dyslexia teachers.

    • C.

      Permission from the parent.

    • D.

      General data on the student.

    Correct Answer
    C. Permission from the parent.
    Explanation
    Before assessment can begin, it is necessary to receive permission from the parent. This is because the parent or legal guardian has the authority to make decisions regarding the child's education and participation in assessments. Without their consent, it would not be appropriate or ethical to proceed with the assessment process. Therefore, obtaining permission from the parent is a crucial step in ensuring that the assessment is conducted in a responsible and respectful manner.

    • E.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above.
    Explanation
    All of the above options are strategies that can be used to help students with dyslexia who have difficulty with reading. Permitting shared reading allows the student to follow along with someone else reading aloud, which can help improve their reading skills. Allowing someone to read to the student can also help them access the information and content they need. Teaching the student to highlight key words can assist with comprehension and focus while reading. Therefore, all of these options can be effective ways to support students with dyslexia in improving their reading abilities.

    • E.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Shortening written assignments can help students with dyslexia who struggle with writing as it reduces the amount of text they need to process. Being specific about expectations provides clear guidelines, helping students with dyslexia understand what is required of them. Accepting oral work as a substitute allows students with dyslexia to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding in a way that is more accessible to them. Therefore, all of these strategies can be beneficial for students with dyslexia who have difficulty with writing.

    Explanation
    Allowing students with dyslexia to use a spell checker can be helpful in improving their spelling skills. Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects reading and writing abilities, including spelling. By allowing them to use a spell checker, it provides them with a tool to assist in identifying and correcting spelling errors, promoting independent learning and reducing frustration. This accommodation recognizes their specific needs and supports their academic success.

    Explanation
    To help students with dyslexia who struggle with handwriting, providing a hard copy of notes can be beneficial as it allows them to refer back to the information easily. Accepting illustrations in place of written work can also be helpful as it allows students to express their understanding visually. Additionally, allowing the use of a word processor can assist students with dyslexia in overcoming their difficulties with handwriting and focus on the content of their work instead. Therefore, all of the above options can be effective strategies to support students with dyslexia.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    It is the law to address the needs of students identified with dyslexia.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that there is a law in place that requires addressing the needs of students identified with dyslexia. This implies that educational institutions and authorities are obligated to provide support, accommodations, and interventions for students with dyslexia to ensure they have equal access to education. Therefore, the correct answer is True, indicating that it is indeed a legal requirement to address the needs of students with dyslexia.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If a student has dyslexia then he/she is in special education.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Having dyslexia does not automatically mean that a student is in special education. Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that affects a person's ability to read, write, and spell. While some students with dyslexia may receive special education services to support their learning needs, not all students with dyslexia require special education. Many students with dyslexia are able to receive appropriate accommodations and support within the general education setting. Therefore, the statement "If a student has dyslexia then he/she is in special education" is false.
