Kyrene Schools Earn Grant to Help Preschoolers With Dyslexia
The Kyrene School District has earned a grant to help preschoolers overcome dyslexia.
According to the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Kyrene schools recently earned a three-year, $100,000 grant from the Burton Family Foundation to help the district intervene with preschoolers identified with dyslexia.
Thanks to the funds, the district’s first dyslexia intervention program will kick off at Kyrene de los Niños Elementary School in January, and Kyrene de la Mariposa Elementary School will be the next school to get the support, the article said.
Dyslexia is a language-processing disorder that makes it difficult to read, write and spell.
