Certification
Dyslexia Certificate Program
Level 1

The Dyslexia Training Institute offers a Dyslexia Certificate Program! This program is designed on quality evidence-based research and will teach participants about what dyslexia is and train you to implement the first level of the Orton-Gillingham (O-G) Approach. The program consists of five three week courses, four webinars and a practicum. Our coursework includes an in-depth study of dyslexia, how to effectively implement the O-G Approach, reading comprehension and fluency development, overviews via webinars of Executive Functioning and Special Ed law. Most certification programs do not cover as many topics as ours. All courses and webinars are online and do not require a specific time of day to be on the class site. The practicum requires participants to work with a student in your area that has been diagnosed with dyslexia or at high risk of a reading disability. Please review the full program details at the link below. Graduate Level Extension Credits are available for all courses in this program.

Dyslexia Advocate Certificate Program

The Dyslexia Training Institute has been offering the Dyslexia Advocate Certificate Program since 2014. This program is designed to teach participants how to advocate for students with dyslexia in our school systems. Participants will learn about the Individuals with Disabilities and Education Act (IDEA), FAPE, IEPs 504s, appropriate accommodations, letter writing, how to request and receive appropriate services and interventions, dispute processes and resolutions, as they all relate to a student with dyslexia. Upon completion participants will have the information they need to effectively work with families and the school districts to ensure the laws are respected and that children are receiving the services and accommodations they need.

This program does teach participants how to identify characteristics of dyslexia in assessment data and student work samples. However, this program does not teach participants how to conduct evaluations.

This program does not teach how to implement remediation. For that training, please consider our Dyslexia Certificate Program or Introduction to Structured Word Inquiry course.
