Master of Education in Reading and Writing
Neuhaus Education Center (Neuhaus) and the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development at Southern Methodist University are partnering to offer an innovative Master of Education in Reading and Writing in Houston. Participants will attend all classes online and at Neuhaus.
This was one of the first nine university programs recognized as meeting the standards outlined in the International Dyslexia Association’s Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading. The IDA Standards provide the most thorough, research-supported documentation of what every teacher ought to know and be able to demonstrate, whether they are teaching students, diagnosed with dyslexia, struggling readers or the general student population.
Upon completion of the 36-hour degree program and with three years of teaching experience, participants are eligible to sit for the Texas Reading Specialist Certification Exam and the Alliance National Registration Exam for Teaching Level Certification offered through the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC). The latter qualifies one for membership in the Academic Language Therapy Association (ALTA).
