International Dyslexia Association

 

Spalding Education International (SEI) is accredited by The International Dyslexia Association (IDA).

 

Following an independent program review, IDA recognized the International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) and the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) for meeting IDA's Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading.

 

The IDA Standards emphasize the need for teachers to be trained more deeply in the structure of language, including the speech sound system, the writing system, the structure of sentences, the meaningful parts of words, meaning relationships among words and their referents, and the organization of spoken and written discourse.
