Resource List for Families During COVID-19 School Closures

Thanks to Decoding Dyslexia California and the other states for allowing us to re-post this list of resources.

In response to requests from our members, Decoding Dyslexia CA Leaders have compiled a list of resources to help families support students with dyslexia and other struggling readers during the COVID-19 School Closures.

Over the past few weeks, organizations and individuals have been generously and frequently sharing resources.  This is wonderful and sometimes overwhelming!  Our intent was to collect and choose the free and low cost resources that we thought would be most relevant for DDCA families who want to supplement whatever their children’s teachers are providing. In addition, we included resources for Structured Literacy programs that are often used in schools so that parents could access those materials or make suggestions if Resource/Special Education services haven’t started yet. 

The Resource List for Families During COVID-19 School Closures resides in a google doc. We will continue to add to it as we learn of additional resources. 

Please be aware that Decoding Dyslexia CA does not officially endorse, represent, or have a legal connection with any of these resources or their publishers.  

We hope that you and your loved ones are managing through these uncertain times and most of all are safe and well!
