CLOI Dyslexia Pandemic Curriculum

“As most all teachers and students alike struggle in some way with remote, hybrid, and in-person learning, children with dyslexia—both diagnosed and undiagnosed—are in critical need of additional support and services. Educators are working diligently to identify and provide appropriate instruction for each learner’s needs, but this can be a challenge even in the most optimal environment. Trying to deliver this level of individualized schooling remotely is an entirely different ballgame,” says Kim Michel, Director CLOI. “CLOI has been able to updated the Professional Development programming to reflect the newly current educational landscape in order to provide the best resources possible to educators.”

CLOI’s courses have been developed to meet the rigorous standards of a graduate level course and can be taken for graduate credit or professional development points (PDPs). The course expectations are the same for either route. Graduate credit is provided by Gordon College, Westfield State University, and MidAmerica Nazarene University; registrants receive graduate credit from the college of their choice. PDPs are offered through Westfield State University.
