Certification as a Certified Academic Language Therapist is the standard for dyslexia therapists nationwide. To attain this, a teacher must:

  • Complete Coursework. Illuminations' therapists have master's degrees in Dyslexia Therapy or are currently enrolled for that degree.
  • Supervised Clinical Experience.  Therapy programs in Mississippi require 700-900 hours.
  • National Certification Exam. Much like ta CPA must pass a test, therapists must exhibit a broad range of knowledge on the structure of language.
