Meet Our IMSLEC Practitioners

Language Practitioners at Children’s Dyslexia Charities in collaboration with Children’s Dyslexia Centers are an amazing, dedicated, and highly qualified group of people who have a passion for helping kiddos learn to read. All Certified Language Practitioners have completed a minimum of 70 hours of coursework and more than 100 hours of practicum training where they perfected their skills through observations, supervision, and practice.  The Center begins a new training course once a year, typically in the late spring/early summer.  It is never to early to apply for the training as there are limited positions available.  To learn more about becoming a language practitioner Click Here!

Laurie

IMSLEC Trained Instructor & Supervisor

What inspired me to become a tutor - Back in 2011 I heard a radio program on dyslexia, which I had never really heard of--this piqued my interest in becoming a tutor in order to help kids "unwrap their gifts" by giving them the tools for better reading. My art teaching job had just ended unexpectedly at that time, so I was looking for my "next thing" - and happened to meet a few weeks later someone involved with one of the first fund-raisers for the new CDCUW, who told me that "YES, they need tutors!" when I asked. I came in and met Tammy, submitted an application for the 2012 training cohort, and have been happily helping students "unwrap their gifts" since, as both a tutor and now a developer/trainer of more tutors.

Margaret

IMSLEC Trained Practitioner

What Inspired you to become a Tutor? - It was the ‘perfect storm’; the combination of recently retiring, learning of the good work of the Children’s Dyslexia Center, and knowing a 10 year-old-child with dyslexia who desperately needed tutoring, propelled me to make the commitment.

Michelle

IMSLEC Practitioner Trainee

What Inspired you to become a Tutor? -
A colleague asked if I had heard of the Children's Dyslexia Center. She shared the website with me, and I saw the CDC was looking for tutors and people who were interested in helping and learning about the best teaching practices to use with dyslexic students that are in need of reading interventions. I was hooked!
