Graduate Certificate Program: Literacy Supports

The Literacy Supports specialization provides in-depth learning and experiences in theory and methods of literacy (reading and writing) instruction. Students will have specialized knowledge in literacy assessment and instruction for preK-12 students who exhibit difficulties acquiring and developing literacy skills.

The Literacy Supports specialization is for educators who:

  • are interested in improving literacy outcomes for students with disabilities and at-risk for failure;
  • want to support all students in a variety of classroom settings within a RtI or SRBI framework;
  • want to understand how to support the literacy needs of students in content areas;
  • desire a more focused and intensive exploration and application of literacy theory, methods, and practices for students with disabilities and at risk for learning difficulties; and
  • recognize the diverse learning needs of students in today’s classrooms
