The Slingerland® Literacy Institute has met rigorous standards to secure accreditation. The Institute is accredited by two agencies:

The International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council (IMSLEC) accredits quality training courses for the professional preparation of multisensory structured language education specialists. The Slingerland® Literacy Institute received its first accreditation from IMSLEC in 2001 and continues to be accredited to certify individuals at the Teaching Level and at the Instructor of Teaching Level.

The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) accredits programs that prepare teachers of reading and/or programs that specialize in preparing teachers to work with students who have reading difficulties and disabilities. One of IDA’s long term goals is to inform the public regarding the knowledge base required for skilled reading instruction. Another is to define the specific teaching capabilities that should characterize any person responsible for teaching students with dyslexia and related reading difficulties, and to identify programs that meet the standards.
