Well, Texas is different. I think it may be the only state that recognizes dyslexia and uses the term in the public schools. Other states just label them sld etc. My kids have been in an excellent public school here in NW Arkansas that does Lindamood Bell, etc, but that is not the norm for most public schools. My kids also went to the speech clinic here at the University of Arkansas for two years. The Scottish Rite is affiliated with the speech clinic here, and they do excellent work at the clinic. It is part of the University's training program for students getting their Masters in Speech Pathology. They tutor students at the clinic as part of their schooling. I wish this kind of training was offered to special ed teachers in school but it's not. As for the Scottish Rite, their charity is dyslexia and they have learning centers all across the nation and Texas is home to their big hospital. The Scottish Rite also train a lot of Orton-Gillingham instructors.

I do know that Keller does dyslexia testing. One of the kids the Resource class I help in just got her diagnosis, she is in 2nd grade. It has helped so much in palnning her IEP etc...

I haven't heard about the Lewisville charter school, but I am sure you have done your homework and researched them etc...

I would also vent out some closer ISDs to see what thier SpEd program is and what they do for dyslexia etc... you might be surprized. Or, it might futher cement your plans for the Lewisville charter school.

Good Luck!

For housing look in N. Eulass as well it's closer to 121 for freeway acess. The problem with t he commute is going to the 114/121 interchange. They are working to fix it but it is a bad bottleneck. the moring up to Lewisville will be worse, but once you get past DFW it should be ok. The home from school traffic will be pretty light since it will be before the work commute.

YOu might also find housing in your price in the Colony. The commute for your husband would be the bad one. But, you might be able to find a bigger house etc...

You can go on a realtor website and look for rentals in zip codes 75060, 75038,
75063,75028, 75019. These would all be good locations (especially 75019) for a Lewisville/Hurst pattern and these all had rentals with 3 bedrooms when I just looked. I didn't see anything with more than 3 bedrooms. These are all fine places. The 7506's are in Irving which is well located and the neighborhoods are fine, the school district is not highly rated. 75028 is Flower Mound, which is in Lewisville schools. 75019 is Coppell, a very highly rated community.
