Purpose of IMSLEC

Benefits of IMSLEC

Through accreditation of training programs, IMSLEC assists individuals with dyslexia and related disorders to reach their potential as contributing members of society.

IMSLEC is an important resource for parents, government agencies, and educational systems for the clarification of what constitutes a quality teacher training program for teachers of dyslexic students by establishing organizational criteria and evidence-based instructional program standards for content and methodology for MSLE training courses.

Accreditation of a training course assures intervention for children and adults with dyslexia that is based on an alternate reading approach that has a scientific basis for its instructional procedures. Individuals with dyslexia or related disorders require a different method of teaching to match their learning differences.

Accreditation of an MSLE training course assures that the teachers or therapists trained in that program have received adequate course instruction and practicum in the skills required to produce positive, measurable results in literacy for the dyslexic population.
