Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading

The International Dyslexia Association created the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading in 2010. This document serves as our guide in recognizing programs that prepare teachers of reading and/or programs that specialize in preparing teachers to work with students who have reading difficulties and disabilities.  One of IDA’s long term goals is to inform the public regarding the knowledge base required for skilled reading instruction.  Another is to define the specific teaching capabilities that should characterize any person responsible for teaching students with dyslexia and related reading difficulties, and to identify programs that meet the standards. We invite you to review the document and we hope that you will partner with us in promoting high standards for comprehensive and rigorous training of teachers.
