Multisensory Language Teacher Training:  June 25-30, 9-5 pm daily
Students with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia process language differently, and they need to learn to read and spell in a different way. Through our affiliation with Shelton School of Dallas, May Center trains teachers to deliver the Sequential English Education program. This program is an Orton-Gillingham approach certified by the International Multi-Sensory Language Education Committee (IMSLEC) and the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) and can culminate with teachers taking the ALTA national certification exam.

Course requirements include the initial 54 hour class, a series of follow up workshops, a practicum of at least 9 months and 5 observations.  Click here for the registration form.
