"Dyslexia: An Analysis of Dyslexic Students at the Elementary Level" is a study that researches the success rate of dyslexic students at the third, fourth and fifth grade levels on the reading portion of the TAKS test in a school district in south central Texas. In 2007, a school district in south central Texas implemented a dyslexia program, Basic Language Skills, which utilizes all learning pathways in the brain (visual, auditory, kinesthetic-tactile) simultaneously in order to enhance memory and learning (Neuhaus Education Center, 2009). The district studied implemented the new program because the program previously used was not yielding the results that the district was desiring. The dyslexic students were not progressing, as they should. This study examined the specific population of dyslexic students at the third, fourth, and fifth grade levels to determine their success rates based on the standardized testing. The focus of the study was to determine if the dyslexic students in the district in south central Texas were being best served with the Basic Language Skills program. From the analysis of data, it can be concluded that the variables in the population studied, from which the samples were drawn, were not dynamically related to each other. Statistical independence existed. In other words, dyslexic students at the third, fourth and fifth grade levels in the district studied across the three years performed proportionately identically. That is, the Basic Language Skills program that the district in south central Texas is implementing is working for the dyslexic students.
