Out-of-State Reciprocity

Out-of-state candidates seeking certification from other states as reading and/or dyslexia specialists should consult with their respective State Education agencies about specific licensure standards and exam requirements. All candidates are strongly advised to consult closely with a graduate advisor for details regarding their program, concentration, and opportunities for certification and licensure.

The Dyslexia Graduate Certificate is a 12-credit hour post-baccalaureate program designed to provide for teachers to meet the requirments for ancillary licensure in Dyslexia by the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE). This certificate meets ADE competencies defined by Arkansas Law as provided in ACT 1294 of 2013. Aligned with standards of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), the International Literacy Association (ILA), and the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC), this program provides teachers with the knowledge and skills to work effectively with students experiencing moderate to severe reading difficulties including dyslexia.
