Wilson Reading System® Training to be held August 14,15 & 16


CRAEA will be a host site for training of the Wilson Reading System®. This program is an intensive Tier 3 program for students in grades 2-12 with word-level deficits who are not making sufficient progress through their current intervention; have been unable to learn with other teaching strategies and require multisensory language instruction; or who require more intensive structured literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia.

The three day training will take place on August 14,15,and 16th at CRAEA Cedar Falls office. Cost is $550 per participant. In addition to the training cost, districts will need to purchase the Introductory Set (4th Edition). This set includes one set of student materials. If working in a group setting, each student requires his/her own materials which would be purchased separately. More information about the cost of materials and the program can be found at this website.

Registration will be on the the AEA registration system in the near future. For more information contact your regional administrator or Kim Swartz (kswartz@centralriversaea.org).
