Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) Training
Springfield Center for Dyslexia and Learning offers a two-year therapist training program using Take Flight: A Comprehensive Intervention for Students with Dyslexia, a curriculum written by the staff of Luke Waites Center for Dyslexia and Learning Disorders at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
Trainees will learn to implement an Orton-Gillingham based multi-sensory language therapy program called Take Flight, which addresses the five components of effective reading instruction identified by the National Reading Panel’s Research.
- Phonemic Awareness
- Reading Comprehension
Our training includes 120 hours of instruction and continued support and mentorship throughout your training cycle. We supply materials to work with one student or one small group.
