The Reading Intervention Graduate Certificate program is for certified teachers who are currently, or will be, working with struggling readers on a regular basis.
Classes focus on improving the quality and effectiveness of instruction in Tier 2 and 3 reading. Consisting of four courses, the certificate can be completed in just one year.
Non-degree seeking students who are only seeking DESE Special Reading certification (not a Master’s or Education Specialist in Reading/Language & Literacy) will benefit from this certificate.
