School of Education professor creates toolkit to help students with dyslexia

BLOOMINGTON – An IU School of Education faculty member co-wrote a new resource for teachers who work with students that have or are at risk for dyslexia, and it’s now available from the Indiana Department of Education.

The Dyslexia Toolkit is a free resource that provides educators with materials such as articles, teaching guides, sample lessons, and videos that can be used to teach basic reading skills to students with and at risk for dyslexia, a learning disability that often leads to struggles with basic reading and language.

Kelly Williams, assistant professor of special education and lead author of the materials, said some educators do not have access to high-quality instructional materials or curricula. The toolkit attempts to fill that gap.
