Training Options

In seeking training, IDA Southwest suggests that individuals read the IDA Matrix of Multisensory Language Education approaches (see sidebar). As that publication states, “Some [approaches] are designed for whole class instruction and are used preventatively to keep children from experiencing academic failure (tier one). Some are designed for small group intervention (tier two). And some provide more intensive instruction and are favored by clinicians who work with students with severe reading disabilities.”

Always inquire about the depth of training you will be receiving and its appropriateness for various teaching situations. Don’t hesitate to ask for the names of graduates from a particular training center so that you can further inform yourself.
