Dyslexia Awareness Training Module Requirement for Initial Licensure and License Renewal – Effective July 1, 2017
Every person seeking initial licensure or renewal of a license shall complete awareness training, provided by the Department of Education, on the indicators of dyslexia, as that term is defined by the Board pursuant to regulations, and the evidence-based interventions and accommodations for dyslexia. This requirement becomes effective July 1, 2017.
To meet the requirements, the Virginia Department of Education has developed a free online Dyslexia Awareness Training Module. Individuals completing the module should print a copy of the certificate of completion for verification. The module has a value of five professional development points.
