Certified Academic Language Therapy (CALT) Training (Cohort 3, Year 1)
The Structured Literacy course offered by Shelton is accredited by the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) and the International Dyslexia Association. This course is called the Shelton Academic Reading Approach (SARA) and is based on the science of reading. SARA addresses the specific written language skills of reading, spelling and writing and trains participants in the use of a multisensory structured language program for students with specific language disabilities, such as dyslexia and related disorders. This course also introduces participants to concepts related to the identification of a student with specific language disabilities.
Upon completion of the course and the associated practicum, participants will be eligible to sit for the Alliance National Registration Examination and gain national certification through the Academic Language Therapy Association (ALTA) and refer to themselves as Certified Academic Language Therapists.
Participants begin accruing practicum hours when they begin using the program and are advised to do so as soon as possible. Observations may be submitted via video. Seminars are interspersed throughout the academic year to address questions that arise in the practicum and to extend the knowledge of the participants.
Year 1 will have a total of 15 days of training and Year 2 will have 10 days of training.
This is a 2 year Cohort and there is a cost for this specialized training. If you need further information, please call 662-915-7763.
