Welcome to the Dyslexia Resource Page.  In July of 2018, Senate Enrolled Act No. 217 was voted in to law.  This requires school corporations to screen all students, K-2 for characteristics of Dyslexia.  This law also required school corporations to employ an individual trained in Dyslexia.  It is my honor and privilege to serve the students, families, and teachers of Seymour in this capacity.  If I can ever be of assistance, please feel free to contact me via email or by phone at 812/522-2596.  My office is located at Emerson Elementary, where I also serve as assistant principal. 

I thank you for visiting this page and look forward to working with you in the future.

Indiana’s Definition of Dyslexia:

In 2015 the Indiana General Assembly passed House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1108. This law put in place an official definition for dyslexia in Indiana. This definition is based on the International Dyslexia Association’s definition of dyslexia. When referring to dyslexia, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) uses the language from HEA 1108.

House Enrolled Act 1108 defines dyslexia as:
A specific learning disability that:
(1) is neurological in origin and characterized by: difficulties with accurate or fluent word recognition and poor spelling and decoding abilities;
(2) typically results 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;
(3) may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge; and
(4) may require the provision of special education services after an eligibility determination is made in accordance with Article 7.
