Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Catalog Search

Dyslexia affects somewhere between 10-20% of children learning to read and is, by far, the most common learning disability teachers must address in their classrooms. Teachers are eager to develop the skills and strategies demonstrated by research to be most effective in teaching students with dyslexia and to help them become the strongest readers possible. This certificate is designed to develop teachers’ efficacy in providing comprehensive reading instruction that is highly effective for students with dyslexia and for all struggling readers. This course sequence addresses language and literacy development, assessment, and the design and delivery of intensive interventions to address difficulties in word reading, vocabulary development, language and reading comprehension, and writing abilities. 

The Dyslexia Graduate Certificate can be taken as a series of five courses specifically focused on dyslexia and reading disabilities, or this can be embedded within the Master of Arts in Special Education Degree. Both approaches will provide teachers with the knowledge they need to unlock the potential of students with dyslexia and provide these students access to the learning opportunities in literacy that they deserve.
