Students with reading disabilities, such as dyslexia, have difficulties coding and decoding words or letters but often have unique problems, including difficulties with visual or auditory processing, says literacy teacher Kathy Gottlieb, who works with students in Washington state's Issaquah School District. Students with such disabilities in Issaquah schools are given individual education plans, detailing the types of instruction and tutoring -- such as a focus on phonics -- that will address the student's needs, Gottlieb said.
