In accordance with IC 20-35.5-5-2, East Noble School Corporation shall publicly report on its webpage the following information related to Dyslexia:

Consent for Screening

As part of the annual online registration process in July-August of each school year, parents/guardians will be asked to answer YES or NO to the following statement:

This school year, I would like my student(s) in grades K-2 to be screened for Dyslexia. I understand that if I consent to this screening process, my student(s) will be given between 6-18 assessments approved by the Indiana Department of Education under Senate Enrolled Act 172. My student will be removed from class for these assessments, each lasting from 5-40 minutes, for a total potential testing time of twelve (12) hours. During this testing process, if my student is determined to be at risk for Dyslexia, I will be notified so that I may consult with my child’s pediatrician and eye doctor to rule out any other potential causes for the learning difficulty. I will also be notified and included in any further school interventions.

If I choose to decline the screener at this time, I may opt-in again at any time by contacting my student’s teacher.

The following are the approved ENSC Dyslexia Screeners:

If screeners indicate the need for intervention services, the intervention may include:

  • Explicit direct instruction that is systematic, sequential, and cumulative and follows a logical plan of presenting the alphabetic principle that targets the specific needs of the student without presuming prior skills or knowledge of the student;
  • Individualized instruction to meet the specific needs of the student in a setting that uses intensive, highly concentrated instruction methods and materials that maximize student engagement;
  • Meaning based instruction directed at purposeful reading and writing with an emphasis on comprehension and composition;
  • Instruction that incorporates the simultaneous use of two or more sensory pathways during teacher presentations and student practice; and
  • Other instructional approaches as determined appropriate by the school corporation or charter school

ENSC Tier 2 Instruction may include:

  • Title I services in applicable buildings
  • Small group LLI instruction
