Approved Oregon Dyslexia-Related Training for K–5 Teachers

In 2015, Oregon passed legislation that requires that at least one teacher in each K–5 school complete dyslexia-related training. The legislation requires that the training must (a) comply with the knowledge and practice standards of an international organization on dyslexia; (b) enable the teacher to understand and recognize dyslexia; and (c) enable the teacher to implement instruction that is systematic, explicit and evidence-based to meet the educational needs of students with dyslexia.

CORE’s in-person and Online Elementary Reading Academy were approved to address the following two focus areas:

  • Understanding and Recognizing Dyslexia (URD)
  • Foundational Skills in Reading (FSR)

Online or Onsite Elementary Reading Academy

Build teachers’ fundamental knowledge of the 5 essential components of reading and reading assessment. Teachers will gain the skills and knowledge they need to prevent reading difficulty, identify the warning signs of dyslexia and intervene with evidence-based instructional practices. Participants in both the onsite and Online Elementary Reading Academy receive the nationally acclaimed textbooks, Teaching Reading Sourcebook (View a sample) and Assessing Reading: Multiple Measures (View a sample).

Taught online in 7 modules over 7–10 weeks, individual teachers may join a national cohort of the Online Elementary Reading Academy or districts can create custom cohorts of 15 or more teachers.
