The Arizona Department of Education is focused on the importance of teaching children to read. Progress in reading development begins with Arizona’s teachers implementing data-based, systematic, and explicit instruction in a multitude of contexts, with many levels of support, each and every day.

Some characteristics of dyslexia are:

  • Difficulty learning to rhyme words
  • Difficulty with language processing
  • Difficulty pronouncing some multisyllabic words correctly
  • Slow word perception that affects reading rate and fluency.
