International Dyslexia Association

The International Dyslexia Association® (IDA) has accredited Wilson Language Training and Wilson Accredited Partners. This designation recognizes that Wilson Reading System® certifications align with the IDA’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.

“That direct instruction in alphabetic coding facilitates early reading acquisition is one of the most well established conclusions in all of behavioral science. . . . The idea that learning to read is just like learning to speak is accepted by no responsible linguist, psychologist, or cognitive scientist in the research community (pp. 285-286)” Stanovich (1994), quoted in Why Reading Is Not a Natural Process.

Testimonials

This workshop was great and well worth the trip (from Ontario Canada). It will help me with my struggling students, but also my son who has learning difficulties.

Cheri is so knowledgeable! But it’s more than that. She’s energetic and fun and makes the Wilson Program come to life. I enjoyed her practical management hints.

Instructor had a great sense of humor and also had great stories to add to the workshop which only made it more effective. Tons of knowledge was gained in the last three days.
