Our reading program is one of only a few of its kind recognized nationally by the International Reading Association (IRA). In addition, the coursework is approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) for the Reading Specialist Certification.

This program employs an interdisciplinary approach exposing you to the cognitive, socio-constructivist and socio-cultural theories in language and literacy learning. It explores best practices in literacy studies and the process of reading, and examines the latest instructional methodologies designed to help students with disabilities to read and write multiple texts, including digital media.

The curriculum will equip you with the knowledge to teach students with reading disabilities and skills to assess their learning outcomes. You will develop the capacity to coach and lead to support excellence in reading teaching, and to advocate for learners with reading disabilities, including Dyslexia.
