IREAD-3 http://wboi.org en StateImpact Indiana: IREAD-3 creates anxiety for dyslexic students http://wboi.org/post/stateimpact-indiana-iread-3-creates-anxiety-dyslexic-students <p></p><p>For the second year in a row, Indiana third graders will have to pass a high stakes reading test or risk getting held back.</p><p>It’s a lot of pressure for 8 and 9 year olds, but for some struggling readers, the IREAD-3 is an even bigger source of anxiety.</p><p>That’s because the root cause of their difficulty is dyslexia, a learning disability. Most students with special needs can qualify for a good cause exemption that allows them to move onto fourth grade even if they don’t pass.</p> Thu, 27 Sep 2012 12:18:52 +0000 Elle Moxley 4653 at http://wboi.org
