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 Writing, 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. Graduate Level Extension Credits are available for all courses in this program. Full Program Details Graduate Level Extension Credit Information Application
