Dyslexia Training Program


About The Training Program:
  • This affordable 12-month program was developed for anyone who wants to master a deep understanding of how to recognize and treat dyslexia.
  • Educators, psychologists, other learning specialists and even parents can benefit from this program.
  • Intensive multimedia training and direct consultation will address the connection between language and literacy, the neurobiological underpinnings and how dyslexia impacts our students' reading, writing and spelling development.
  • Educational technology tools for providing intervention to dyslexic students will also be highlighted.

This program was created to support the rapid expansion of demand in India for best practices in educating our children with dyslexia and other learning differences. In Dr. Hart’s more than 25 years of experience, he has never witnessed a more intense desire for developing expertise in this arena than he has seen in the Indian parents, educators and psychology professionals.

This is not a “one-and-done” teaching model. The training for this program reflects the most recent findings regarding how people best learn and, importantly, actually change their behavior. The dissemination of information is combined with ongoing coaching and mentoring so that there is adequate time and support to master the content presented. Professional Learning Communities will also be moderated and supported.

  • Webinar presentations on the monthly topic (will be recorded for review at your leisure)
  • Ancillary recorded videos on each topic
