Can schools say “dyslexia”? What about terms like “dysgraphia” or “dyscalculia”?
It’s always been OK for schools to use terms like “dyslexia” in special education evaluations and IEPs. The same is true of “dysgraphia” and “dyscalculia.” And in a 2015 guidance letter, the U.S. Department of Education encouraged states and school systems nationwide to use these terms when appropriate.
What does the guidance letter mean for your child? Watch an interview with Michael Yudin, who served as a top official for special education at the U.S. Department of Education. Yudin was interviewed by Lindsay Jones, Esq., of the National Center for Learning Disabilities.
Below are some of the topics discussed in this interview, along with time stamps.
