The Smithsonian Institution will soon be offering a FREE online certification course to support professional reading specialists interested in using mobile e-reader devices to help students with dyslexia in their practice. Certification is only open to professional reading specialists (e.g., licensed educators, learning specialists, speech pathologists, librarians, etc. or students registered in programs in such fields). The certification program will provide instruction in how to identify which students are likely to benefit from this treatment, how to configure a variety of devices for use by students, and otherwise provide an overview of the related research.
The certification will be offered via this site beginning Jan 21, 2014. We appreciate your continued patience.
