Educator Preparation Program Accreditation

Accreditation is a “seal of approval” that assures the public that your organization’s educator training curriculum and practicum experiences are  aligned with the Knowledge and Practice Standards (KPS) of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) sufficient to ensure that program completers are knowledgeable about, and can apply, the principles and practices of Structured Literacy in the service of preventing reading failure and remediating off-track readers with profile characteristic of dyslexia.

  • Developing readers
