DBU Program Accredited by International Dyslexia Association
June 12, 2014 | by John Mark Miller
Dallas, TX – Dallas Baptist University’s Master of Arts in Teaching program has been accredited by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). This recognition is given to university programs credited with doing an excellent job preparing reading teachers to lessen the impact of reading difficulties for their students.
“The recognition by the IDA is exciting,” said Dr. Carolyn Spain, director of the MAT program at DBU. “It emphasizes DBU’s commitment to excellence through the partnership with Shelton School’s multisensory program.” This partnership has allowed DBU to offer a concentration in Multisensory Instruction for graduate education majors.
DBU was one of eight institutions in the U.S. to receive this accreditation.
The International Dyslexia Association is a non-profit, scientific, and educational organization dedicated to the study and treatment of dyslexia as well as related language-based learning differences. The IDA operates 43 branches throughout the United States and Canada, and has global partners in 20 countries, including Australia, Brazil, England, Germany, Ireland, and Japan.
