New Braunfels ISD offers a comprehensive system of “Child Find” in which all individuals birth through 21 who may or may not be in school and who fall within our jurisdiction, regardless of the severity of the disability, will be located, identified and evaluated. Efforts include contact with private, parochial and home schools (if applicable); and public awareness activities.

Note: Services are provided at no cost to the parents

Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.003 defines dyslexia in the following way:

“Dyslexia” means a disorder of constitutional origin manifested by a difficulty in learning to read, write, or spell, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence, and socio-cultural opportunity.

“Related disorders” include disorders similar to or related to dyslexia, such as developmental spelling disability.

The International Dyslexia Association defines dyslexia in the following way:
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.  It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities.  These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.  Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede the growth of vocabulary and background knowledge (Adopted by the International Dyslexia Association Board of Directors, November 12, 2002).

NBISD Dyslexia Program

New Braunfels ISD is committed to supporting students with dyslexia through a comprehensive intervention program. To achieve this goal, the district has implemented Reading By Design as their dyslexia intervention program. This program is a systematic, multisensory approach to literacy development that is aligned with research-based practices.

Reading By Design provides an intensive, explicit, and cumulative approach to remediating reading and writing skills at all grade levels. This intervention program is designed to provide targeted instruction and support to students with dyslexia to help them develop the foundational literacy skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.

With this program, students receive the individualized instruction and support they need to build the literacy skills they need to succeed. The district is dedicated to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their learning differences.

Reading By Design (Region 20)

TEA Dyslexia and Related Disorders
 

Provides services to eligible 3, 4, and 5-year-old children with disabilities in Early Childhood Special Education.

  • For children referred prior to age three as a referral through an early intervention program while receiving services through ECI, special education services must be made available to the child on his or her third birthday if the child is found eligible.
  • A child who is four years old on or before September 1st and meets district pre-kindergarten requirements may enroll in the district’s pre-kindergarten program.  Certain guidelines must be met for pre-kindergarten attendance.
  • A student must be five years of age on or before September 1st to participate in the district’s kindergarten program.
  • If the child is to be evaluated by our Assessment Team for Preschool Children, the child participates in a screening and the parent completes appropriate referral paperwork, notice and consent.  Based on the referral information, the assessment will be assigned to an assessment team or a speech-language pathologist.  The evaluation team and/or the SLP completes the evaluation.

The NBISD Gateway Transition Program serves special education students who have completed their high school experience and requirements, but are still entitled to receive special ed. services and would benefit from training to allow them to live as independently as possible in their community.

Homebound instruction is a service provided through New Braunfels ISD for students whose medical difficulties are so severe that the student is unable to attend school.

A referral for the Homebound program may be made if a NBISD student is experiencing significant medical problems that will prevent regular school attendance for an extended period of time. All referrals to the Homebound program must be accompanied by a physician’s statement of eligibility for Homebound services. Referrals to the Homebound program should be made as soon as the physician anticipates an extended absence. Several requirements must be fulfilled before a student can be enrolled in the Homebound program:
 
The parent must complete required district forms requesting consideration for Homebound services. The parent must give consent for the district to contact the student’s physician. 

  • The physician must complete required medical forms documenting that the student’s disability/illness/injury is so severe that the student is unable to attend school for a minimum of four school weeks.
  • Once paperwork has been completed, a referral for evaluation is made to the Section 504 Campus Coordinator and all Section 504 Procedures are followed.  If the student is served in Special Education, then an ARD (Admission, Review and Dismissal Committee) convenes and Special Education procedures are followed.  

The Homebound program of instruction is designed to help students keep up with their schoolwork during their absence so that the student can return to school.  When the physician has determined that the student is medically able to return to school, a medical release must be obtained prior to the reentry into the home campus.

The term “Speech” encompasses the formation and arrangement of sounds, the rhythm and cadence of speaking, and the pitch and quality of one’s voice.

“Language” includes both receptive language, or what a child comprehends, and expressive language, or what a child communicates verbally.

Special Education Parent Advisory Committee

Establishing Committee:

Principals appointed one representative to serve on the district-wide committee. This year a Facebook page has also been created to increase the support and awareness of the group to the families of students in special education for NBISD. The twelve member group included parents from a variety of backgrounds with students having various disabilities and instructional settings. Members of the Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC) will represent each campus in the school district, not just their child. Now parents will be asked to also serve the NBISD Special Education Parent Advisory Committee if they choose and possibly the NBISD Parent Advisory Committee. Please contact the Special Education office if you have any further questions. 

Purpose of the Committee:

The purpose of the NBISD SEPAC is to collaborate and create a partnership between the district and parents so that communication, action, and positive progress can result in benefit for the special education community in NBISD. This committee will allow for opportunities for parents to formulate suggestions and to participate, as appropriate, in decisions regarding the education of NBISD’s special education children.

We are in need of Surrogate Parents

What is a Surrogate Parent?

The Individual with disabilities Education ACT (IDEA) requires that state and local school systems involve parents in decisions regarding their child’s needs. In cases where the child has no parents, none can be located, or the child is a ward of the state, a parent surrogate must be appointed to represent the child and protect the child’s rights in matters relating to identification, evaluation, and placement in a special education program. A surrogate parent must also complete required training regarding special education laws, rules, to a child with disability and be willing to put in the time to adequately represent the best interests of the child.

The Special Education Department of New Braunfels  Independent School District is looking for Surrogate Parents. If you or someone you know would like to serve in this voluntary role for our students, please contact Heather Jarboe  (830) 643-5718.
