Prolific, Productive Practicum
Neuhaus Education Center’s Basic Language Skills classes finished the summer with a bang! After spending two June weeks in Hattiesburg, MS conducting an Advanced class of 23 future Masters in Dyslexia Therapy teachers through William Carey University, we returned to Houston to teach 31 more teachers in an Advanced class. In July, the Introductory class was bursting at the seams with 53 prospective dyslexia teachers/therapists. This class included individuals from Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Washington state, in addition to teachers from several districts in Texas. Each teacher successfully completed the Introductory class and is now accepted into the Dyslexia Specialist Preparation Program, in which most will pursue their path to Level 1 (Teacher) or Level 2 (Therapist) certification.
As the 2014-2015 academic year came to a close, we reported to the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) that we had 23 graduates complete our program this year! This grand total comprised 2 teachers at Level 1, 19 therapists at Level 2, and 2 Qualified Instructor candidates from William Carey University. In addition to stimulating, our year working with Tier III education has been positively purposeful, prolific, and productive! Thanks to everyone on the Neuhaus team for contributing your part.
