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.

Questions or concerns relating to the Dyslexia Awareness Module should be directed to Special Education Instruction
