About the Dyslexia Professional Development Requirement

Idaho Code 33-1811 states that no later than the beginning of the 2023-24 school year, K-5 educators (instructional staff and coaches employed by a local education agency and involved in the instruction of students in grades K-5, including those providing special education instruction) and 6-12 educators (all teachers, administrators, and school counselors with an instructional certificate in grades 6-12) must receive dyslexia professional development.

Educators have several options for meeting this requirement: complete our 6 to 8-hour Understanding Dyslexia course, OR our 16 to 21 hour Keys to Beginning Reading Part A course, OR our full, 36 to 48-hour Keys to Beginning Reading course. Click here for a brochure with details including costs.

About the Dyslexia Recertification Requirement

Educators holding a certificate with an expiration date after the beginning of the 2025-26 school year will be required to earn 1 or more credits of PD in Dyslexia to certify. One credit is defined as 15 hours of course work. This requirement is for all subjects (K-8), exceptional child generalist, blended early childhood/special education, administrator, and school counselor. It must be completed no later than the beginning of the 2025-26 school year.

Educators have several options for meeting this requirement: K-5 can complete our 16 to 21 hour Keys to Beginning Reading Part A course, OR our full, 36 to 48-hour Keys to Beginning Reading course. For 6-12 educators, we are awaiting approval from Idaho DOE to offer our Key Comprehension content literacy course combined with our Understanding Dyslexia course.  Click here for a brochure with details including costs.
