ACT 1039-Dyslexia Screening and Intervention

Intervention Program

All Arkansas schools must have an intervention program in place to assist students identified as having characteristics of dyslexia. Friendship Aspire Academy Arkansas uses Fundations phonics, Fountas and Pinnell and Words Their Way curricula. The school would also provide explicit, direct instruction that is systematic, sequential, and cumulative and followed a logical plan of presenting the alphabetic principle. FAA will target the specific needs of the student without presuming prior skills or knowledge of said student.

Student Data

During the 18-19 school year no students were identified.
