Empower Spanish-Speaking and Bilingual Students with a Dyslexia Curriculum Built for Their Needs
Administer the world’s first systematic, sequential and explicit approach to teaching Spanish literacy using the Orton-Gillingham approach. Esperanza is an evidence-based curriculum designed to improve literacy skills for Spanish-speaking and bilingual students identified with dyslexia.
Do bilingual children have the same weaknesses in both languages?
Research suggests that the brain development and weaknesses of people identified with dyslexia are similar, regardless of the language they speak. However, the difficulties are not necessarily the same in each language. For example, children may make more reading errors in English than in their native language. But they may read more slowly in their first language.

What is Mastery? How do students get to it? And how does it help interventionists to ensure the academic success of our dyslexic students?
Whitehouse Independent School District (ISD) in Texas enrolls nearly 5,000 students across four elementary schools, a sixth-grade campus, a junior high, and a high school. As the district’s special education team began serving a growing number of students with dyslexia, it needed to find new ways to work smarter, not harder.
