We've partnered for your success! Fitchburg State’s master of education in special education, guided studies with a focus in dyslexia provides elementary and secondary school teachers not only the foundation to better understand language based disorders like dyslexia, but also certifies teachers in both WRS Levels I & II through its unique one-of-a-kind partnership with the internationally renowned Wilson Language Program®.
Students complete four required courses, including a capstone course on implementation of best practices, and 27 credits in three goal areas with content meeting the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading set forth by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). Three courses are associated with Wilson Reading Level I Certification, three courses are associated with Wilson Reading Level II Certification, and the three courses in the Foundations of Literacy goal area have been selected to meet IDA standards.
