Library

A Dyslexia Lending Library is available through Region 13 Education Service Center as a valuable resource for classroom teachers, special educators, dyslexia specialists, Academic Language Therapists, parents, paraprofessionals, principals, and other professionals working with children with dyslexia and related disorders.

Dyslexia Library Entry Portal

The library catalog is now available on-line. A search can be made by title and by author. A new feature is the keyword search.

Notes about the Keyword Search

  • At this time only one word may be placed in the keyword box.
  • For example, if you were looking for material on "social skills" , the search box will only accept the word "social" or "skills"
