Wilson Reading Certification

Online Wilson Reading System® Certification


According to the 2005 National Assessment of Educational Progress report (NAEP), millions of students in schools across the nation struggle to read every day. The online Wilson Reading System® Certification from Saint Joseph's University provides teachers with the skills needed to help students become fluent, independent readers, using multi-sensory, structured language programs and strategies to teach reading and spelling successfully.

The Wilson Reading System® (WRS) is implemented in public and private schools, literacy volunteer organizations, clinics, adult basic education classes, family literacy programs, correctional facilities, and home school situations across the country. WRS directly teaches the structure of words in the English language so that students master the coding system for reading and spelling.
