Beginning in the 2018 spring semester, Jemicy School will partner with Notre Dame of Maryland University to offer a 12-credit graduate dyslexia certificate program with courses developed by Megan McGowan, head of Jemicy Lower School, and other administrators and master teachers. The program will teach those on the ‘front line’ the skills and methods needed to be competent and effective diagnosticians and teachers for all children, not just those with learning differences. Classes will be held at both the university and Jemicy School in Owings Mills.
Course offerings will include:
- Foundations of Literacy I: A Structured Language Approach for Teaching Students with Dyslexia (3)
- Foundations of Math: Understanding Math as a Language (3)
- Foundations of Literacy II: Moving Beyond the Basics (3)
- Integration of Learning Strategies and Executive Function Skills (3)
This coursework, which will also touch on dysgraphia and dyscalculia, aligns itself with the Knowledge and Practice Standards for Teachers of Reading developed by the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). Upon completion, candidates will be prepared to take the IDA certification exam for classroom educators.
